The Art of Medieval Tombs

A link to Eleanor of Aquitaine's tomb effigy.

In my time travel romance Not a Ghost of a Chance, I mention that art that actually resembles the individual, instead of merely portraying their station in life, true portraits and sculptures began with tomb effigies. At the end of the story, the knight's tomb has changed to a tomb of a Lord and Lady holding hands. Here is a similar tomb: The Tomb of the Earl and Countess of Arundel
