Photographer's Note

I rarely post photos of details but I find this object very curious. I have no idea what is was for. It hangs on the walls of Neamt Monastery and looks very old.

The Neamţ Monastery is a Romanian Orthodox religious settlement, one of the oldest and most important of its kind in Romania. It was built in 14th century, and it is an example of medieval Moldavian architecture. A jewel of 15th century architecture, the church was built by Ştefan cel Mare and finished in the year when the Moldavian army won the battle against King John Albert (1497).

The monastery is located in north-eastern part of Romania, in Neamţ County. .

Sumptuous, with delicate colour effects, the monastery shows the maturity of the Moldavian architectonic style, which matured during Stefan cel Mare's period. The façade of the church is covered with the decoration characteristic of Stefan cel Mare's time: Gothic windows and friezes with enamelled disks, coloured in green, yellow and brown.
