Name Game - revealed

OK, I give in.......

I couldn't believe a cat got it first! Well done, Derby - Charlie will be proud of you! :-) and well done Derby's mom - great taste in literature!
Well done to Jean-Luc for working the clues, and he did pick up on that word 'now', although the Chapel has been world famous for centuries! :-)
And Mrs A - tut tut - I said no crazies.....but I was intrigued at how you went about your investigation - from the other end of the spectrum :-)

The painting is indeed of Rosslyn Chapel, the oldest medieval chapel still in daily use. I believe the pillar on the left is the Apprentice Pillar. Now famous for being a pivotal part of The Da Vinci Code, this tiny chapel has been a source of Holy Grail myth for centuries. The carvings are overwhelming and unique in the world and each piece of the chapel tells a story.

Here is the website if you'd like to learn more.

I was thrilled when I heard my namesake was to be used in the Hollywood production of The Da Vinci Code - perhaps I should write to Messrs Howard and Hanks and tell them of my connection [big wink]

And why am I named for a little Scottish chapel when I was born in Devon? Well, I am quarter Cornish, half English and quarter Scots :-)

That's SO cool! I read the DVC, so I'm pretty sure I know your name, but, well, I'm bad at guessing, so I won't say.

Hope you had a nice holiday!

Michele sent me.

Ha! we have similar name problems! But I wouldn't change mine for the WORLD! People always call me Marsha...

And I tried to do this Meme... but I kept coming up with pictures of Marcia Brady and Marcia Gay Harden, and I don't like being associated with people who pronounce their names incorrectly... Maybe if I have more time tomorrow!

craziequeen said...

Ah, I'm English - so it's automatically Marseeah :-)
