My daughter Katie has been visiting us since last Wednesday and she returns to Seattle early tomorrow morning. Today we decided to drive to Forest Lawn in Glendale which is a Memorial Park and Mortuary but also filled with beautiful works of art. In fact it was the Builder’s Creed to provide a different place for burial that depicts Eternal Life and Light not Darkness.
This sweet grouping is set before the Builder’s Creed which speaks of the vision he had for this beautiful park. You can read the creed here.
Forest Lawn-Glendale has been home to a world-recognized collection of art and architecture since 1906.
Here is some of what you can see at this landmark location:
- Exact replicas of Michelangelo’s greatest works such as David, Moses, and La Pieta
- Leonardo da Vinci’s immortal Last Supper re-created in brilliant stained glass; two of the world’s largest paintings
- The Crucifixion and The Resurrection
- Original bronze and marble statuary, rare coins, valuable 13th century stained glass, old world architecture
unfortunately The Crucifixion and The Resurrection exhibit was not open today. :0( We did see the Last Supper (no photos allowed) and many beautiful bronze and marble statues. The next three bronze statues really caught my eye.
“The First Lesson”
To see more Three or More visit Tam at the Gypsy’s Corner!
Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage unless I pay them a lot of money. I’m slowly cleaning up many posts from this time period and deleting their ugly grey and black boxes with a ransom request. Such a time consuming bother.
