Here is a piece of stained glass, not particularly notable in itself, but I am interested in what the Virgin Mary is standing on. I was puzzled by something similar in the pilgrim church at Maria Woerth a couple of years back wrote a post on it somewhere) and this piece makes it clear. She is definitely standing on the moon, which has a squashed face peeping out. One sees moon and sun with faces in early representations of the crucifixion, a piece of anthropomorphism inherited from Roman art. I don't know about the man in the moon's intervening journey into the iconography of the Virgin Mary, and I plan to find out.
The Austrians really excelled in wood carving, and to prove it here is a delightful Pentecost scene made around 1520 in my new home turf of Carinthia, the southernmost province. It's very little, but all the apostles' faces show such strength of character and individuality, with their big noses and bigger hairdos. It manages to be small without straying into 'cute' territory. This is a combination I really admire but feel I haven't yet managed to achieve.
