street symbols - brughes

    Newer Older

    An eclectic mix of religious and pagan symbols. It's a pity that modern buildings are so totally sterile. Have we lost something that is more essential than we realize?

    Brughes:
    1 Mysterious bishop - why does he have such a tragic look? A martyr? Could not find any information in the tourist guides.
    2 Green bush wit anthropomorphic ornament.
    3 Neptune as a fountain.
    4 The divine light - great baroque ornament. The mystical image of God.
    5 A hidden deamon.
    6 A tragic green man.
    7 The baptism of Christ. An early medieval tympanum.
    8 A golden wind vane and the compass rose. A symbol of the world. But why the golden ball? Also the world? I have not found any information in the tourist guides.
    9 Christ as The Lamb.
