When in doubt what to blog, blog things like links.

Is that a blogger's adage? If not, can we make it one? I will at least do what it says and blog some links for you.

First of all, for those of you who know about the Maaseik embroideries, here's a direct link to their pictures (among others) from the kikirpa database. In case you don't know about the Maaseik embroideries, they are a series of 8./9thc century gold and silk embroideries. In case you don't know about the picture database of, go take a look - it's worth it.

And in less serious at lest as important news, highlyeccentric blogs about the fate of a penis tree mural.

Finally, totally unmedieval but fascinating: Art from somebody who merges photos with pencil drawings. Really worth a look too. Text is in German, but the pictures are not, of course.

Thanks for the Maaseik links! The kikirpa database is really interesting, but also really difficult to manage :-)

Didn't you say in an earlier blog that in moments of doubt you were going to post pictures of wool for us all to admire...?

Did I? I really should keep track of what I'm planning to blog about. Pictures of wool... coming right up!
