Harpies, polycephalous creatures and sea monsters: these are a few of the specimens in the bestiary from the Musée de l’Image in Épinal, now awaiting you in the Gue(ho)st House in Delme.
In total, twelve vignette plates or full-page illustrations are presented. It is a chance for visitors to dive into the world of these popular images created from wooden or stone moulds, recognisable by their large sections of colour. Among other reasons, these images circulated for the purpose of transmitting not only knowledge, but also illustrations of political or historical events, educational pastimes for children, or pious images from religious culture.
This exhibition is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 2 PM to 6 PM, on Sunday from 11 AM to 6 PM.
