The prompt from Sunday Stills this week is ‘creepy things’.
These photographs (The Tomb of Philippe Pot) were taken at Chateauneuf in the Beaune region of France earlier this month.
It’s a re-created version of the original, currently held in the Louvre Museum, which shows the effigy being carried on the shoulders of the ‘pleurants‘. A lion lies at the feet of the effigy. Philippe Pot was a grand seneschal of the Duchy of Burgundy, and was given the castle (Chateauneuf) by Philippe the Good, after the true heiress (Catherine of Chateauneuf) was burned alive for the murder of her husband (Jacques d’Haussonville) .
