The frescoes at Fanefjord Church. Photo of the Week #34

This week I went to the island of Møn South of Copenhagen and visited the small church at Fanefjord where some of the most famous Danish frescoes are. This is not Michelangelo obviously but they are still wonderful images and great illustrations of the Bible for the illiterate farmer you’d expect having used this church in the 15th Century.

This image shows the creation of the animals of the sea. And lo and behold – for a 15th Century artist mermaids were a well-known part of the animal kingdom.
