In honor of All Souls

A series of images compiled by a Florentine Art Historian Cecilia Frosnini, in commemoration of All Souls Day. She describes the images in her own beautiful way thus:

I have some images for All Souls Day on my blog.
The text points the close relationship between
death and life in the ordinary daily life in the
Medieval Age. There were lot of frescoes, on the
facades of the buildings, inside the palaces and
houses (not only in churches) representing it
and admonishing about the possible sudden death.

It is an honor to know someone who has dedicated her life to the study of beauty as expressed by the human soul through art.
