A little bit of Pagan imagery in a Roman Catholic place...cannot be a bad thing, heh!

An unusual find in a monastery - I doubt if it has changed much from pagan designs
Tom Wilson: As I said to Ray - the holy day is still Sun-day smile

A universal image down the millennium. A sign, I suppose, of light & power
Tom Wilson: Absolutely - the sun god rules smile
I painted a similar one on a floor at a client's home.
Tom Wilson: Really! Now there's a coincidence!
That must be very old I would think.
Tom Wilson: As a symbol, yes; but as a carving, no older than the monastery - mainly 17th century, although there are older bits.
I like the way the sun has been depicted Tom.
Tom Wilson: Like a rather fat face smile
My dad was a sun worshipper...
