1547: Epitaph of Segebade Clüver

(Best viewed in large size for the details)

This is my favourit epitaph in Bremen Cathedral! It´s in an area which is usually very dark, but the other day there was light enough for photographing.

It is unusual, in colours and style very special among the others. Although I tried, I wasn´t able to find out more about Clüver or the artist who created this.

At the bottom of the relief is a writing (which I cropped for the composition) which says something like:

In the year 1547 at the 14th of November died the venerable and noble Mr. Segebade Clüver [.... some words I am not sure about] may his soul rest in peace.
