Sheep Saturday

 

This gable stone 'Lamb of God with a Christian banner' was seen at the backyard's entrance gate of the Old St. John's Hospital, a 11th-century hospital in Bruges, Belgium. "The hospital grew during the Middle Ages and was a place where sick pilgrims and travellers were cared for. The site was later expanded with the building of a monastery and convent. In the 19th century, further construction led to a hospital with eight wards around a central building." Today the hospital is among other things a famous museum with paintings by Hans Memling. 

'Lamb of God' (Latin: Agnus Dei), a title for Jesus, appears in the Gospel of John (John 1:29) where John the Baptist sees Jesus and exclaims, "Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world." This sign is appropriate to mark the entrance of the St. John's Hospital. I like the curly coat of the sheep. It's a pity that we cannot cuddle and fondle this lamb.

It is an unusual looking lamb. It looks a bit like a dog. Interesting information to go with this picture Philine
