photoblog image Mérida, Spain

Mérida, Spain

National Museum of Roman Art

This collage, I think, speaks for itself. It refers to St Eulalia (Julia) of Mérida.

A beautifully presented montage, EeJay.
EJWilkins: It could have been better, but it does what I wanted it to do, which was to offer information.

Ray is right - and I like the cross- sign and the finely engraved Latin letters on the marble stone, i.e. the 'O', 'U','I' or 'B'. Eu- lalia means the 'eloquent' saint!
After having googled a bit I found a painting by the Victorian John W.Waterhouse in the Tate London presenting her maryrium and 'Cantilène de sainte Eulalie', one of the oldest French texts (800 AC): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Eulalia_of_M%C3%A9rida
EJWilkins: The text of the inscription is so clean, it seems as if it was carved recently rather than well over 1,000 years ago, and those little added details are so telling too.
Thanks for the picture link Philine smile
Another very interesting collage Ellie.
Interesting way to present the picture, very instructive !
