Klappentext

Excerpt from The Story of Gotton Connixloo: Followed by Forgotten

The village of Metsys, the gray roofs of which cluster on the Flemish plain not far from Malines, has preserved intact to this day a beautiful church in the amboyant style. Its irregular facade resem bles an old face covered with wrinkles whose kindly and mysterious smile conceals a world of secrets. 'about the curves of its porch are coiled garlands of owers and fruits. The tympanum, in which appears the Virgin Mary with angels paying homage, quivers with a beating of wings. A pointed gable surmounts the porch and repeats the sharp angle of the roof. From the cross-aisle of the transepts rises a belfry so delicate, of such exquisite lace-work, that one might expect it to tremble in the wind or with the vibration of the sprightly chimes that issue from it on Sunday mornings. Around the apse sleep the tombs.
