Birthday at the Cloisters, NYC

 These pictures are vision of hell that must have reformed a few 14th Century sinners.

A brief video clip of the carvings below

The Unicorn Tapestries are still a main attraction

This room is kept cool and dark to protect the tapestries

Despite their age, the colors are still beautiful

You have to read the signs to get the story - hint, it's about salvation!

This is the "Rosary Bead" a meatball-sized carved devotional artifact
My favorite piece in the museum

The gardens are open in the summer - a joy in good light

It was windy but cool and beautiful.
