The cists in Southover Church, 1845. Creator: Richard Henry Nibbs

The cists in Southover Church, 1845. 11th-century human remains found in the ruins of the ancient Priory of Lewes in Sussex, during the construction of a railway line. ...the workmen exposed a leaden Cist, or coffer, surrounded by a few square Caen stones. After clearing away the soil, the Cist was carefully removed, and, on being opened, was found to contain human bones, proved to be the remains of Gundreda, daughter of William the Conqueror, the name "GVNDRADA," as it is spelt, being cut upon the lid....'. A second cist was found, ...and on the lid is inscribed WILLMs, an old but usual way of writing Gulielmus. This has been readily interpreted into the name of William of Warren; by this means establishing the fact that these Cists contain the remains of Gundreda, the founder of the Priory, and of her lord, the first Earl of Warren and Surrey'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Descent from the Cross, 1653. Creator: Adam Lenckhardt (German, 1610-1661) Featured Print

Descent from the Cross, 1653. Creator: Adam Lenckhardt (German, 1610-1661)

Descent from the Cross, 1653. The prince of Liechtenstein, Karl Eusebius--one of the preeminent Central European art collectors and patrons of music during the 1600s--commissioned this work. The contract challenged Lenckhardt to carve an eight-figure group out of a single huge African elephant tusk from Eusebius's own treasury. Because of the tusk's hollow interior, the artist plugged the sculpture with an additional piece of ivory at the base, now the skull and bone at the foot of the cross. The story unfolds only by walking around the sculpture, with every viewpoint offering subtle fluctuations of the narrative
