So I was kicked out of church today.
Visited the beautiful cathedral in Bratislava, a very historical place and site of some very important events and coronations.
The art was fairly similar to most pieces found in churches throughout Europe, but then I entered the choir area.
At the end of each row was a BEAUTIFUL, fun and playful, hand-carved, wooden sculpture.
I spent more time looking at these beautiful carvings than I did the entire rest if the church.
Then I saw a beautiful Dragon and I knew I needed to get a photo with Trampy, and was so happy to get the shot before a volunteer stopped me and said, “Have some respect!” I pointed to draw his attention to the sculpture of the MONKEY PLAYING THE VIOLIN, and the BEAR PLAYING THE BASS.
As I put Trampy away I assured the volunteer that the person that designed these sculptures could only have wanted them to inspire playfulness and joy, not stuffy, sterile, grumpiness.
Trampy and I turned on our heels and left.
I would still HIGHLY recommend visiting this cathedral, exclusively for these amazing wooden carvings.
