Some cool stuff from the Cluny

St. Katerina

Awesome ceiling in gothic room - missing from picture my mom and Katya crawling around on the floor (with a bag of wipes.)

Carved head on a platter. John the Baptist.

Reliquary foot. Reliquaries were used to carry holy relics, often bones of Saints were put in containers matching the part of the body the relic was supposed to have come from. Here's a foot. Way cool, huh?
