The Grave Chapel – a victory of nature

Today I want to show you another piece of art and history of my hometown, the so called Grabkapelle  (grave chapel). It’s a small Baroque chapel next to our church and the graveyard. It has a little altar in it showing a Pietá with a Veil of Veronica beneath.

The chapel is named after a little side chamber with a live-size statue of dead Jesus lying on the floor.

The chapel is in a very poor condition with mold and moss on every wall and broken plastering…even a bird is nesting on one of the capitals of the columns of the vault…pity for the church, luck for the photographer and the bird…
