Photographer's Note

detail from the streets of Antwerp


Antwerp has a history steeped in Roman-Catholicism, but its attitude toward religion is often tongue in cheeck too.


This picture shows a detail of a decorative frieze outside a pub called Het Elfde Gebod (The Eleventh Commandment).

Het Elfde Gebod is a pub located right next to the cathedral. It is filled with religious paraphernalia, including what could be one hundred statues of saints.

If you ever visit this particular pub, the recommended beer is Sint Bernardus Tripel, which they have on tap here and is highly recommended.

The Eleventh Commandment is to HAVE FUN AND ENJOY LIFE!
