religious iconography

The other half is an artist and has been besotted with religious
iconography for as long as I can remember. This is a wall in our dining room.
We aren't religious, but the images are lovely.


  1. I'm the same way, my mom is Catholic so I grew up with iconography in my parents' home. When I'm out thrifting or at estate sales I'll often scoop up religious paintings or little silver medals in appreciation of the artwork.

  2. a little while back, at savers in frankston we saw a pair of pictures which would look amazing on your wall. it was jesus and mary, portrait style.. two seperate pictures in gorgeous big frames. we nearly bought them but didn't....

    i also have a few religious things, but they are kind of creepy.. hehehe.

    i love your wall!

  3. I collect religious art and imagery too ;)

  4. What a beautiful collect you've got there! Although I don't collect this myself, I am always drawn to it as I thrift ~ you've inspired me and I may have to pick myself one sometime soon!

    With a smile,

  5. I love it! Wish I had a wall just like it :)

  6. Wow, these look great! I love the colour of that wall, too :)
