Hawkshead Parish Church 3/7

In close up today are just some of the series of Biblical texts, painted by a local artist called James Addison in 1680 on the walls either side of the nave in Hawkshead church. Yesterdays posting shows just how many there are.

One of those little details that are so appreciated!
Brian Walbey: There is quitea few of these Elizabeth, although I fear some might have been whitewashed over during the years.

They are wearing well. I like the little Cherub
Brian Walbey: They are Lisl although I fear some might have been whitewashed over during the years.
How wonderful that they are still preserved so well, Brian, after all these years!
Brian Walbey: I took the opportunity in this lovely little church to do a Ginnie and Lisl and photograph some of the finer points as well as the main parts of the building.

This is wonderful, Brian. Too bad, I think, the walls are so white and it almost shows they painted over the frescoes.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid. I do wonder if some of the very old wall paintings have been painted over at some time or other.

I think the one to the left shows some previous writings on the wall. If so, that would have been prior to 1680. That is even before I was born smile
Brian Walbey: There are some very old ones like the one you refer to, my fear is that some of the very old paintings might have been whitewashed over in years gone by.
These are most unusual Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes they are and about 340 years old as well.

A lot of work gone into what on the face of it look to be fairly simple pieces.
Brian Walbey: They are and about 340 years old so I guess that was the style back then.

they have aged remarkably well then, Brian.
