C'est pour mettre de l'argent ?
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Martine.
a kind of a frescro? a timely message for our consumer driven world, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Ayush...kinda like a fresco. One of the things I most loved about Austria is how MOST of the decorations, especially on the outside of buildings, are painted on.

this is stunning
Ginnie Hart: We saw this kind of decoration all over Austria, Sherri...painted on with the effect that it was 3-D.

A great find nicely photographed!! A sighting that always humbles me.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Steven.
That's truly charming, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. So much of what we saw in Austria was like this, painted on to look 3-D.

To ensure a swift passage to eventual eternity, no customs checks..
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure of it, Chris. It is, after all, Roman Catholic!
A very nice box that, I hope, attracts donations.....
Ginnie Hart: I would assume it does, Marie, from any of the many pilgrims that apparently do visit this basilica up on the hill.

This is a great find, Ginnie. I wonder who makes the decision to give it to the pelgrims and where will they go...Love the 3D effect here.
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Astrid, this is a place for the pilgrims to pay their own offering that, I assume, then goes to the upkeep of the basilica. But then, that's how catholic churches are all over the world, of course. And to be honest, in our baptist church growing up, they passed the offering plate every Sunday!

I love your subtitle - a lovely Lüftlmalerei as the Austrians would say.
Ginnie Hart: An "air painting." I really like that, Philine. smile
Très originale , je ne connaissais du tout
Ginnie Hart: It was new to me, too, Claudine. Merci.

No doubt people would think they will get their reward in the next life.
Ginnie Hart: ...as would be true for any Roman Catholic, I'm sure, Alan. (sigh)
Buying a stairway to heaven 😀.

A lovely detail
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Bill. Buying one's way is the message of the Roman Catholic church, I'm afraid! sad
Ce rappel ne manque pas d'originalité ;-)
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Someone deserves a medal, Pascale. smile
yeah, as jeff bridges said in 'the fisher king'... 'i wish i could just pay the fine and go home'

i don't think i would pay the catholic church tho lol
Ginnie Hart: We felt no obligation, Elaine, but I did enjoy the photo. smile
One way or another we make payments,
Ginnie Hart: Yes we do, Martin.

Une urne joliment décorée
JP
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, JP, isn't it.
Ja, dat is duidelijk en heel mooi uitgebeeld
Zet je weer even met de voeten op de grond !!
Fijn weekend
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Marjolein. I loved seeing the Austrian paintings all over the country, especially on the outside of the buildings.
Almost a trompe l'oeil!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Tom. We saw paintings like this all over Austria, both large and small.

het bijschrift is veelzeggend

have a nice day
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Willy. It really did catch my eye!
Lovely decoration for the receptacle and I like your presentation, Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Ha ha... I thought it was "wall pamphlet offer"
At least I got offer right.
My German ain't that bad eh? LOL
Ginnie Hart: HA! You'd survive well enough, LC. smile
What an elegant view! Friendship
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ruthie.
