One of the most famous artworks of the 15th century – and one of the most renowned religious paintings of any century –  is the Altarpiece of the Lamb.  Called The Ghent Altarpiece due to its location in the Saint Bavo Cathedral in Ghent, Belgium,  its creators were Hubert and Jan van Eyck (ca. 1390 – 1441);

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
