Superbe fresque.

It's lovely. I really like this boat friday

What a wonderful looking thing this is Ginnie. More hidden treasures..
Ginnie Hart: Gable stones are definitely "hidden treasures" for me, Chris. I'll never take them for granted. Thanks.

This is one of the most beautiful decorated gable stones I saw, Ginnie. Amazing how much detail it has.
Ginnie Hart: It really is special, Astrid...and perfect for a harbor town like Hoorn. Bedankt.

I recall this gable stone in Hoorn - a very fine image!
"De Slag op de Zuiderzee, ook wel de Slag van Bossu geheten, was een zeeslag uit de Tachtigjarige Oorlog. Het zeetreffen vond (met een onderbreking) plaats van 3 tot 12 oktober 1573 tussen de watergeuzen en een Spaanse vloot, op de Zuiderzee nabij Hoorn en Marken. De slag werd gewonnen door de watergeuzen en leidde een periode van bloei in voor de Westfrieze steden Hoorn en Enkhuizen."
Ginnie Hart: No wonder it's such a beautiful gable stone, Philine: "The Battle of the Zuiderzee, also called the Battle of Balboa, was a battle of the Eighty Years ' War. The naval affliction took place (with a break) from 3 to 12 October 1573 between the beggars and a Spanish fleet, on the Zuiderzee near Hoorn and Marken. The battle was won by the water beggars and led a period of flowering for the Westfrieze cities Hoorn and Enkhuizen. "

What a delightful carving - full of movement and fun
Ginnie Hart: It's one of the best I've seen, Lisl. As per Philine's quote above (translated here): "The Battle of the Zuiderzee, also called the Battle of Balboa, was a battle of the Eighty Years ' War. The naval affliction took place (with a break) from 3 to 12 October 1573 between the beggars and a Spanish fleet, on the Zuiderzee near Hoorn and Marken. The battle was won by the water beggars and led a period of flowering for the Westfrieze cities Hoorn and Enkhuizen. "
It is a very fine example Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so,Bill. Thanks.

Many thanks for the translation! The ship in the center is "Het admiraalsschip, dat zeer toepasselijk “Inquisitie” heette, was een zwaarbewapend gevaarte en zou, onder bevel van de Henegouwer Maximiliaan van Hénin-Liétard – Maximiliaan van Bossu (1542-1578) -, de aanval op de geuzenvloot leiden."
On the left are the Spanish ships, on the right the ships of the Sea Beggars. The ladies could smybolize the Fortuna, the goddness of luck and fortune. The gablestone is from the 17th century like the Bossuhuizen.
Ginnie Hart: Great information here, Philine. Leave it to you to come up with it. Bedankt.
Quel beau travail de sculpture ..
Ginnie Hart: It's one of the more elaborate gable stones I've ever seen, Claudine. Merci.

A very nice gable stone Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: We may have even seen it while you were there with us, Chad, a few years back.
Wat een mooie plakette.
Echt mooi vastgelegd
Fijn weekend
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Marjolein, on both counts!
what's with the naked chicks? lol their boats are too small smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, as Phikline says, "the ladies could smybolize the Fortuna, the goddness of luck and fortune."

The translation of geuzen to beggars is literary correct, but these people were all but beggars. They were a group of nobles, grouped in resistance to Spain's civil and religious despotism. Also an action of protestants against catholics. They adopted the 'beggar' name after a protest march in which they were referred to as appearing as beggars. They then turned into an honour and named themselves as those begging the release of the Netherlands from Spain.

Great picture of this gable stone.
Ginnie Hart: I'll leave it to you and Philine to duke this one out, Louis. HA!

Sorry, I have to correct my information:
"Tussen de beide reliëfs een gevelsteen met het Hoornse oorlogsschip (vlaggen: roodwit-rood) “De Eendracht” van admiraal Connelis Dircksz., geflankeerd door twee gebeeldhouwde Fortuna's of Venussen en met geschilderd onderschrift: ‘Bossu Zeeslag/D 10 MD 11 Dag 1573’ (de 10e maand, 11e dag, 1573)."
Ginnie Hart: This gets more and more informative by the minute, Philine. smile "Between the two reliefs a facade stone with the warship (flags: Roodwit-Red) The Concord of Admiral Connelis Dircksz., flanked by two sculpted Fortuna's Poolgarden or venuses and with painted caption: ' Balboa Naval battle/D 10 MD 11 Day 1573 ' (the 10th month, 11th day, 1573)."

Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
What a lovely close up - beautiful details and color
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ruthie. As gable stones go, it's one of the most elaborate I've seen.
Great shot, it makes me want to see this for real.
Ginnie Hart: You would love the gable stones of the Netherlands, Brian.
Is this gable stone larger than usual. It is quite detailed.
Ginnie Hart: A "normal" gable stone wouldbe just one section of this, Mary, so, yes, this is larger than usual.
