Study in Blue

The figure on the far left was one of those slow-speaking old-country men you just want to put up your feet by the fire in a room with and listen with to the long silences. He passed away a long time ago, now. Last I heard, the little guy/girl on the right is still happy.

Wittenberg Robe?

Seen recently:  Luther relic from 1543 in an obscure under-glass public exhibit of historic vestments (I think) in a side room in Berlin’s Nikolaikirche, estimated to be the oldest extant church (12th c) in Berlin. Luther lived and taught at Wittenberg for many years after that famous Nail in the Door.  Happy Reformation Day 500.
