misericord

New mercy. Oude Kirk, Amsterdam

The Oude Kirk’s misercordia program is an incredible collaboration between the church, media and social organizations.

Below, nine of my favorite misericord at the Oude Kirk. The complete set is comprised of 35 interesting and very unique “mercy seats”.
