One of the main reasons for the historic importance of Naumburg Cathedral ( see our last posting) is the artwork by the so called Master of Naumburg: he was a master carver trained in Northern France ( Amiens, Noyon), who then moved to Naumburg at the Eastern rim of the German Empire and from here to Northern Spain - a good example of the interdependency of the world already in Medieval ages, that is threatened today by nationalistic policies.
And his art work is really breath taking, because it is so lifelike. These are ‘portraits’ of Ekkehart and Uta, two of the twelve founders of Naumburg Cathedral. Ekkehart was a Margrave, physically strong as you would expect of a medieval ruler. He looks like the kind of man that actually used his sword once in a while. She was his wife and looks so very elegant. Her upturned collar and the way she pulls it closed to keep her warm, makes her seem so alive.

السبب الرئيسي لأهمية كاتدرائية نومبورغ (انظر اخر مشاركة لنا) هي العمل الفني الذي يُطلق عليها تحفة نومبورغ.
