monk or pimp

This blog is not going down the fine arts path don’t worry, above is the central panel of a carved wooden altarpiece made in 1518, in Marienkirche, Lubeck.

Beautiful religious imagery, slightly squint by way of scanner mishap. So this page has lain open on many of my coffee tables over the years. More as a curiosity than a divine work of blah blah, what interested me was the pimp style monk sitting in the middle, his sunglasses give him away.
