♥"That many human gargoyles are nude or nearly nude is notable because the nude was rarely depicted in medieval art - only when required by a subject, such as Christ crucified." (..... mention of Adam & Eve .....) "...according to biblical tradition, nakedness is a symbol of shame and absence of virtue."

Until we meet again before His throne, Clothed in the spotless robe He gives His own, Until we know even as we are known ... Good night! Good night! Good night! [ My young nephew took a star-path, a short-cut home today ... he lives now forever in his Father's heavenly home ... see you soon my little brother, we'll fish again then, Brandon. ] ~ Picture of a boy's grave in Montparnasse Cemetery, Paris.
