A few shrines in Venice with paintings (or copies of paintings) inside of them~
This shrine contains a copy of a painting of the Madonna and Child; the original resides in the nearby church of the Gesuati. The tabernacle is dated at the bottom: 1860.
The painting inside this shrine is very degraded, but the the orange metal flowers are cheerful and make me smile. This one is dated too, in Roman Numerals, MDCLXV (1665).
This fancy Baroque shrine is dated 1717. That date applies to the elegant marble tabernacle, not to the image inside which is a copy of a painting of the Virgin of Lourdes.
The Deposition of Christ. This painting looks familar but I can't place it. Anyone recognize it?
Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend.
