  4. Guess it was just hard to portray emotion, specially since the action itself was the focal point.

  5. half of these are a depiction of st. thomas beckett having his head split open in front of the alter.

  6. They must have been aware of zombies back then, as they seem to all know to kill by going through the brain.

  7. After many years of studying the Medieval period, I’d say the stoic look on the faces of those being killed remind me of pictures of Christians, possibly martyrs, ready to go to their heavenly rewards. And the shape of the swords are very cross-like, except maybe for the “weapon” removing the cataract. The looks on some of the faces of those doing the killing are tortured, as if they realize where they are going.

  8. Never really put two and two together, shall look at ancient art with a more jaundiced eye.

  9. Love this puzzling collection of medieval murder victims
    being blasé – kudos to the compiler !

  10. History told us that the weaks will always get killed… And when there’s soldier, there’s war…

  11. Painting #2: “Hey, it’s OK, you gotta do what you gotta do.”

    That guy is taking that TOO well.

  12. Man, that’s how I want to go. No crippling fear, no intense sadness, no pleading to cling on to life. Just like, “alright just f***’n get this over with”.

  13. I am looking for an old illustration in a French Literature book printed some time in the 1880s.

    An old woodcut illustration….
    A man is walking down a narrow street when suddenly the windows across from him are thrown open and several men release a large number of crossbow bolts at him. They connect when the victim is trying to draw his sword.
    At the same time, above him a window is opened and a man with a spear is stabbing downward.
    I lost this book before I could copy the illustration.
