street symbols - brughes
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?
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.
