Stiff Little Fingers

By Philip_H
Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Hide & Seek' and well done to all those who spotted the rabbit Grin

I think Nathan and Nezih will have to go to Specsavers though! TongueWink

This image is part of the ornate marble tomb of Sir Baptist Hicks (1551-1629) and his wife (Lord & Lady Campden) in the Gainsborough Chapel of St James's church in the Cotswold town of Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire.

Best wishes,
Philip

The crossed hands make a lovely bit of detail from the tomb, Philip

Really super composition Philip - love the focus on the hands which are beautifully described by Moira as "Hard, cold but so gentle".
