Your support is very much appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks for sharing these photos of religious artwork. I enjoy the older ones better than the more modern ones (I'm guessing that the first photo is the modern one?), but that is a personal preference!

You are correct the cover photo is the latest one. I also love the older ones makes me romanticize about the past which has been thru a lot for centuries now.

Really great to see all these artworks. Although old we can still marvel at the skill of these artists today! Thanks for sharing with us :)

Thanks for walking with me and I am very glad to have discovered my appreciation for artwork. A lot has been lost but these will remain to be enjoyed by everyone for the years to come.

A wonderful collection of paintings. Inspires the creation of something interesting))

You are an amazing artist and I am glad it has inspired. Will be looking forward to it.

Nice collection of artists and artwork!
My kids and I have been reading about the Renaissance and discovering many artists and works of art from that period. Super interesting stuff! :D

Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Botticelli and many more masters from that era. Works which I only dream of seeing one day. Probably would bring me to tears if I came face to face with one of their works.

So true...
It would be truly amazing to see their works in person! ♥

Looks like Alonso Vazquez believed in the prevalent belief that Archangel's have one set of wings.

Nice images.

Namaste, JaiChai

Yes a belief that dates back 3000 years ago. That particular painting was a donation by one of the richest family in our country. A donation that is appreciated for us to marvel at the archangels.
