Cadaver Tombs

Grote of Onze Lieve Vrouwe Kerk, Breda, Netherlands.


From a large postcard of Grote of Onze Lieve Vrouwe Kerk (Church of Our Lady), Breda, Netherlands.

The "Grafmonument" (Memorial) to Engelbrecht II Van Nassau. Died 1504.

This is possibly where Maximilian Colt got his ideas from for the large monument in Hatfield England where the Four Graces hold up the black slab on which the body of Lord Cecil complete in his robes of office is on the top and the skeleton on the slab beneath.
