Now, I'm in the chapel of Notre-Dame-de-Tronoën. This place is famous for its exceptional calvary built between 1450 and 1470, more than 500 years ago! As a comic strip, it tales the life of Jesus Christ to the uneducated Faithfuls living in the Middle Ages. It's astonishing and really touching.
I have masked the Full Moon with Jesus Christ's Cross. Click here to see the virtual reality view made from this picture and you'll see on the frieze:
- in the bottom frieze: Joseph presenting Jesus in the Temple, the christening of Jesus (carved two times), and Jesus among a group of Doctors.
- in the top frieze: Ponce Pilate washing his hands, Jesus between to soldiers, and Jesus carrying his cross (followed by the two Thiefs)
- at the top: Jesus Christ crucified, two angels collecting his blood in two graals.
