Good Friday

 

"When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” 

From that time on, this disciple took her into his home." 

--John 19:26-27

so sad...
Ginnie Hart: Even in death he was taking care of others.
That is an interesting piece of art.
Ginnie Hart: It is, Michael, and reminded me of that passage in John's gospel.

A time of reflection to understand how much one person sacrificed for all. Great post for this day!
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Steven. Even in death he was thinking of others.

A wall plaque, Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: I have no idea from where this comes, Ray, but in stone, I imagine it is very heavy.

I am glad that we took time to go through the museum and see beautiful treasures like this, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I am, too, Astrid. When I took this photo I knew I would use it for a Good Friday one day. smile

Oh I wonder how old this piece of artwork might be Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: The closest I can find, Chris, is that it's from a collection of 14th-16th century pieces.

This looks extremely ancient, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: As I just told Chris, Lisl, the best I could find is that this is from a collection of 14th-16th century pieces.
A perfect picture for today Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Bill. Thanks.

i'm left a bit speachless with that... the horror of the cross, the beauty of Jesus' love... my mind cannot grasp it.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Elaine. But this is one of the incredible "endearments" from that day.
Wat een prachtig muurbeeldje
Straalt alles uit wat het zou moeten...héél mooi

* En jullie zijn ook overal geweest he ?
Ginnie Hart: It definitely fits this day, Marjolein. And yes, we have been to so many places, for which we are so thankful!
Oh so who took Mary to his home?
John?
Ginnie Hart: That appears to be so!

Bon vendredi à  toi aussi.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine.
Like the images Philine has shown this week the simplicity in style of this brings over its meaning more than some paintings etc.full of garish colour, it doesn't have to be 'flash' to tell this very sad story.
Ginnie Hart: You are so right, Brian. Thank you.

Nice piece of art, well chosen.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Anne. It was perfect for the day, of course.
An ancient looking piece.
Ginnie Hart: The closest I can get is between the 14th and 16th centuries, Tom.
what a treasure. Have a wonderful Easter weekend.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, Robin.
The subject matter for so many artists and sculptors over the centuries, each applying their own interpretation.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Martin.
very nicely cropped and presented, Ginnie. i like this style of inscribing the stone.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush, and I do, too.
Beautiful the deadlift with a black background
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
very fitting for Good Friday Ginnie... this is a magnificent sculpture of the crucifixion....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: We could find so many of them all over Europe, Peter, couldn't we! Thanks.
Your quote is the perfect translation for this lovely piece.
Happy Easter, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Elizabeth. Thank you.
