Recess

effigiesWhat can you see when you peer into darkened corners and recesses in dimly-lit churches? Perhaps something like this, in St Edmunds church, Crickhowell

… a 17th-century couple, separated by death but united in commemorative tomb effigies

effigyHere she is, her eyes turned heavenward in hopes of what is to come …

effigy… and here he is, vigilant at her side, time-worn and scarcely visible

A post for All Souls’ Day, celebrated every year on November 2nd
