    .. the old work of the monk scribes working by dim candle.. .

    I think of these religious all of the time, of their patience and insight into souls.  So many of their tiny paintings convey powerful expressions in the eyes and so forth.

    I wonder how many hours a day they spent working on a psalter or the like?  I wonder if it's true that they used the stomach hairs of sables, which are naturally curved to make paintbrushes?  What did they eat, or were they fasting constantly?

    I did find out that female religious did a lot of manuscript work, also.

  • Elizabeth, I came across a book called The Tres Riches Heures of Jean, Duke of Berry.  The publisher assembled reproduction manuscript pages beautifully.  It's as if I'm holding the originals.  I was very lucky to find it at Halfprice Books for a bargain.  The paintings going with the script are amazing.  The entire manuscript is Biblical in nature from saints to the Apostles to Christ.  The following link is the best online display I've found of the manuscript and it's worth a browse through...

  • I did these both 8-10 years ago when I was coming out of the NO and started  attending the Indult. (No longer at either one!)
    They were sculpted in clay and poured in bronze.
    I never had an art education but I was always inclined towards art and sculpture- these were my first ( and my last) real pieces.
    Looking back, I would have done them differently. Maybe I will have a chance in the future to do just that.
    Most Traditional priests that have seen the bust of Our Lady took it to be a more modern representation.. a little too current and worldly looking- I can see that now.
    Our Lord (side view here) I still like, but from the front has a head tilt- not a strong image " Christ the King" ( My NO was showing) More like  the sorrowful Christ.
    Anyway, technically I think they are pretty good, but I can no longer work in bronze as it costs thousands of dollars a pour. ( only one of each was ever casted) I still have the molds from the original clay, however.
    Someday I will go back to it, God willing.
