St. Innocents, Pulpit and Ossuary

Charnels Silvestre

Yet another copy of this drawing by Bernier. Unlike the original the perspective is broader so we see more of the pulpit and the sky; unlike this copy there is no man; unlike this copy it is not night and there is no praying woman; unlike the three other versions this one is more tidy and the holes in the roof have been thatched, so the skulls aren't visible anymore. There's a larger version here: Vieux charniers.
