Censer      This censer made in Germany is typical of the style popular in western Europe at the end of the fifteenth century. The intersecting raised bands mimic the complex vaulting systems used in late Gothic churches, and the openwork areas are reminiscent of the tracery found in the windows of these buildings. Ca. 1498.

Censer- a container, usually covered,in which incense is burned especially during religious services; I wondered if the incense in the censer have a unique smell to them.

ZAMORA Semana Santa - NOT American KKK - but this is where the KKK got the inspiration for their costumes. This is a Catholic Procession in Spain held during Holy Week. Members of Lay Brotherhoods wear the conical cap and face covering (in different colors for each Order) as a sign of penitence. Peaked caps like this were also placed on the guilty during the Inquisition. It is where the dunce caps in school days of old came from! (How fitting that the KKK chose a symbol of shame!)
