A Monastery in a Cave – Momper

     Monks labor and pray at their cave monastery in this image by J. Momper. One monk feeds a donkey, which stands in the river which runs in front of the cave. Another monk tills the soil in front of the monastery. Two other monks gather firewood. Another monk greets a pilgrim at the cave entrance. A crucifix and candles are just visible within the cave's entrance. Three figures kneel in prayer below the crucifix.
