Fonthill: Saloon – Fireplace Mural

Saloon Fireplace by Karl Graf. “The Rich Man and Lazarus Brocade Mural”

 Canon 5D MkIII, EF17-40 f/4L @ 17mm, f/8.0, 0.5 sec, ISO 400

“The Rich Man and Lazarus” is an example of Mercer’s Bible series brocade relief designs.  This unique mural was designed specifically for the hood of the main fireplace in the Saloon.  It is a single piece design as opposed to the segmented scenes present in Mercer’s other brocade stories.  The details and colors are exquisite.  The characters are from antique stove plates as described in a previous post.

The image below is the side panel of the main fireplace.
