Happy Easter, Everyone! ... and as a special treat, some close-ups from one of my favorite paintings in the collection: you can always rely on a depiction of the Resurrection to feature arms and armor. In this case some interesting Spanish examples, a lovely green brigandine, an Iberian-type crossbow, and -if you look closely- a ‘goats-foot’ spanning lever... I’m planning to have this wonderful painting on display before the end of the year!
