Hoorn, Netherlands - again - LesleyBray

In 1441 began with the construction, which was completed in 1519.
The south entrance just around the corner has a cartouche in the arch with the inscription: Hic Meta Doloris (here ends all suffering). The corpses of paupers were carried into the church via the side- door, their suffering has ended, we see the hourglass on its side (time has run out)and the skeleton is incomplete.
