George’s Postcard Note: From cave-like dark granite interior into blazing sunlight – I stumble from prehistory into what looks like a festival happening on the great doorway before me! The glossy painted bas-reliefs, all these festive people, reminded me of the great doorways at Chartres – their stone stories – except these people seem happier! Maybe they’re gods and goddesses and angels. I imagine Gothic sculptures looked happier when they were painted, too!
