    Mary, these are just a few of the carpet samples we have. If you don’t see anything you like, just say so, and I’ll go back to the shop for a different selection.

    I wish, I’d known about this strip sooner.

    Mr. Melcher, thank you. Your captions are as priceless as the art.

    I am a sad little Latin nerd. I actually immediately set out to sight-read both the top and bottom banners. It wasn’t hard.

    Those wings are, um…interesting.

    Go down to the end of the hall, and the bathroom will be on your right.

    Click-to-enlarge image can be found here or here (Google translated). Smaller enlargement can be found at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry.

    This is The Annunciation scene within the Scenes from the life of Christ (links show Wikipedia pages) painting, shown, with a watermarked, different coloration image (foto #5), by the current-location page (Google translation loses image, full painting).

    It was one of several works by this artist commissioned to decorate a large cabinet described here. This lists the various scenes in the full painting (different coloration, click-to-enlarge image), and this describes (different coloration enlarged image) the scene shown here.

    It is one of several paintings of this scene by the artist. His Catholic Encyclopedia bio, Wikipedia page, and collection (many more under Subcategories at each level).

    Second, of the 3 works, by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.

    The problem with this strip is that everytime I go to a museum, my girlfriend and I start making up captions for the art. Fun, but the docents start to follow you around after a while!

    That little stool in front of Mary indicates that Mike may be a shoe salesman (one with questioable fashion sense).
