The Lazarus gate.

A mural from the time that labor still costs nothing. Made by Gregorius Cool from sandstone it shows  the parable of the rich man and Lazarus. Always a fine reminder in the netherlands when you pass this gate in Gouda. One for monday murals here.

    1. You still can find a plaquette on the schreiers tower in amsterdam that in 1609 Henry Hudson departed from that point in amsterdam on his expedition to America.

  9. It is impressive door lintel. Hard to believe it has survived in its original setting all these centuries. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  10. 1609, wow, impressive. The parable, though is a bit problematic - it tells the poor to be happy with their lot - wonder where that idea comes from...
