Aug 24, 2000

The original dress. The chemicals of the bog preserve things very very well but discolor everything brown. I could still see the shades of a plaid in the stole.

Aug 24, 2000
13:49:54

The Holy Family There were quite a few pieces in the area telling the story of Mary's parents, Anna and Joachim. But this is, to me, an amusing depiction of Anna, her three husbands, her three daughters all named Mary, and their husbands and children.

Looking through the doorways of several of the 17th century rooms. It was a bit weird since many of the wallpapers and such had been changed in the 1930's. It's not clear to me what period they were trying to represent.

An interesting woman's costume.

Aug 24, 2000
14:36:26

The National Museum

Room setting. Beautiful carved wood. This was one of the brighter rooms. I went into one gorgeous room that was completely carved in dark wood lit only by small sconces. You could almost imagine yourself in this dark place by candle light at night.
