LATER FRENCH GOTHIC: St. Maclou, Rouen, France, C. 1500-1514. While the Renaissance was already in full swing in Italy, the French were pushing the extremes with elaborate ornamentation as seen in the exquisite traceries of St. Maclou. Considered one of the best examples of the "Flamboyant style" of Gothic architecture in France.
Church ruin in Norfolk, England, with a tree rising into mist, ivy on the walls, and Autumn leaves on the ground. Local myth has it that the nun who lived here was a witch with a wooden leg. After she died and was buried in the church, this tree began to grow from her grave, having sprouted from the wooden leg!
