Virgin and Child on a Crescent Moon
Austria (now Italy)

This high-relief sculpture was undoubtedly the focal point of a large shrine flanked by carved or painted shutters, a common Late Gothic altar arrangement in Southern Germany and in Austria. The image of the Virgin on a crescent moon reflects the vision of St. John told in Revelation 12:1: "a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon was under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head." The background of the lost shrine may have been decorated with golden rays to suggest the sun. The orb held by Christ signifies his role as spiritual ruler of the world while the grapes symbolize his Passion. The singular, deeply cut drapery and smoothly rounded faces while suggesting the influence of the Swabian master Hans Mulescher anticipates the style of the next generation of Tirolean sculptors, particularly Hans Klocke.

The Cloisters, a branch of the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art dedicated to the art and architecture of the European Middle Ages, is located in Fort Tryon Park near the northern tip of Manhattan island on a hill overlooking the Hudson River. The Cloisters collection contains approximately five thousand European medieval works of art, with a particular emphasis on pieces dating from the twelfth through the fifteen centuries.

Isik a.k.a. my Drow guy . . . The word means Dark Elf a.k.a. the evil cousins of the surface Elves. However, he isn’t evil, but opposing to it, a goody two shoes for the matter.

Opposing to his long haired self that is wearing medieval clothes within his previous picture, he currently has short hair, and is wearing modern and stylish clothes.
