a photo a day from germany's capital city
quite austere. :)
That's an impressive space!
It's a great place to hang portraits.
Hmmm...is there a lesson here? If you build a bench, they will come? Not! Looks rather foreboding and cold plus you've got all those old dead guys looking down on you! :)
This was not my favorite part of the museum. But I guess they feel like they have to show off all the old dudes somehow!
This place is an interesting mix of ornate and severe. Yes, there is seating, but you wouldn't want to sit on those stark wooden benches for long.
This was a large museum with lots to see. It was not very full when we were there (off season) but I imagine in the summer months people must need to rest a little.
They make you feel welcome there.
Good that you can sit and take in all the various portraits!
Ja in Wittenberg kann man viel über Martin Luther erfahren und sehen.GrußNoke
I find it a bit painful. A lot of sitting places but no one around.
Ah, lot's of places to sit and reflect.
I like sitting in a quiet gallery admiring the art. That podium below is quite impressive as is the bust of Luther in the post below that one. I'm trying to catch up on visiting. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
I'll stand and move quickly through this exhibit... not my 'cup of tea'.
What a beautiful place!
These old portraits always look so stern and serious. A beautiful room though.
The room was the best part, especially the ceiling and those carved thingies!
The ceiling is indeed gorgeous, but the floor rivals it...as does the wainscoting. I'm not sure I'd enjoy hanging out with the wall dudes, but sometimes a bench is very welcome as you shuffle through a museum.
That's all right, I occupied one of them this past May. :-)
Martin Luther must have had his supporters here in Norway too. I remember "something" about it from school..It still amazes me, the wealth and the power the church have had.Interesting posting.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I love hearing from you!
