Purse Cover from Sutton Hoo Another ship burial at Oseberg Norway famously held objects from the VIKINGS the great seafaring and woodworking barbarians from Scandinavia The Animal Head Post is characteristic of the masterfully carved wooden ships of the Vikings and is also representative of the animal imagery and abstract motifs of medieval art HIBERNO SAXON Monasteries were built in Ireland during this period and provided a safe haven for European scholars Monks chose this location specifically because of its isolation which provided solace away from worldly temptations and

symbol of the apostle Matthew is seen in the Book of Durrow eagle for Mark not the lion traditionally used a calf for Luke and a lion for John There are illuminated manuscripts from Late Antiquity as well as Medieval Europe however Miniatures are only found in medieval manuscripts These highly detailed handpainted pages were placed in between the text of manuscripts ARH 252 The Chirhoiota Page

scene of Second Coming is depicted within the tympanum of Romanesque portals Why 0 Within Italy freestanding baptisteries contribute to the diversity of Romanesque architecture One of the most famous
