Found this at the back of an old church in a nearby village. In over 25 years as a cabinetmaker I've never come across such a strangely made frame Smile
I had to use my tele zoom to avoid my reflection appearing in the glass

Very nice image, Rende, quite painterly. I wonder if those 4 pieces of wood were originally each a part of something else, some piece of furniture?

Well observed, as always, Rende!
I love this image - do you think the carpenter lost his mitre saw after the first joint and had to improvise for the other 3 corners?WinkSmile
A superb image - full of character and interest.

The textures and detail in this interesting image are superb. Well spotted!!

I think there could have been more than one pair of hands involved in making that frame!!

A strange frame for a beautiful small picture. Deliberately created in order to set future generations wondering, perhaps?

A wonderful discovery, Rende, a still life framed by another still life. The colour behind the glass is superb and the frame supplies the perfect contrast. Tranquil and calming.

Quirky and intriguing, even more so to a cabinetmaker, but there lies its appeal.

Not only the frame, but also the window itself appears to be experienced a concrete remake inside the stonework. A very interesting find, and as Bill says, "the colour behind the glass is superb and the frame supplies the perfect contrast." Textures are also super, an excellent image.
