From 16th century Hamburg.
I took my camera to the Met Museum again and photographed a painting by an anonymous artist of my nightmare of my German ancestors (mine were never this prosperous).
My! What a ferocious looking bunch!
A painting of the whole family with Jesus and surrounded by verses from Luther's Bible written here in northern German dialect.
How would like to see these faces looking back at you from a jury box as you go on trial for your life?
The women look just as ferocious. Dippy looking Jesus.
"A mighty fortress" indeed!
