The religious room


Sometimes it seemed like the rooms at the Märkisches Museum would never end - there was so much variety in the exhibits. This room was dedicated to religious artifacts collected from Berlin churches over the years. A school class was visiting on the day I was there and these three girls stayed back to marvel over the alterpiece.


I, however, marveled over this piece. I'm not sure what the story is, but it looks like that fellow in the middle is having his head stepped on by Jesus. Ouch!

PS: I've got pictures from my recent trip to Israel on Halcyon Travels. Stop by and take a look!

  2. If they are from round Berlin you are lucky to have them after the bombing in the war. They look to be some nice pieces there.

  5. It looks like a great room, very soothing. It kind of reminds me of St. Joseph's Oratory on Mount Royal here in Montreal. :)

  11. A wonderful space! It's nice that it's lit more brightly than a typical church so you can actually see the pieces on display.
