D & I took advantage of a museum “freebie” ( several museums in Bourges are free to visit!) to keep busy during a downpour. The museum of the Berry region( the real name of the region where Bourges is located in) has many interesting exhibits. But this one took my breath away.
Walk in the room and it is filled with ancient gravestones(and some columns and mosaics) all around the floor and even the walls of the whole room. These are all ancient and original gravestones, found in Bourges or in the larger region.
D remarked that this one reminded him of Buddah.
A sarcophagus or stone coffin. You can see the sides better by clicking on the images:
Unlike the other exhibits( I will show you a few memorable exhibits later), I truly felt an energy here. Surely, the spirit of those who were represented. It was a peaceful and welcoming energy.
See you tomorrow for more posts 🙂
