Thornham Parva Retable Talk

Post by Myal Pyper »

I have just found the following advertised in our local parish newsletter which I thought might be of interest to some of you.

The Riddle of Images an illustrated talk by Spike Bucklow - Friday 17th March evening

Spike is returning to the Thornhams to talk about the Retable's examination at the Hamilton Kerr Institute, the way it was constructed about 1330, the materials used and the relationship between craftspeople employed in the creation of an object of international importance.

He will talk about the symbolism of the image and the colours used, helping us understand, through the retable, other pieces created over several centuries in these islands.

Tickets from Tina Schwartz on 01379 788207

Unfortunately for me it clashes with TORM but I thought I would just flag it up
