    The notion of the afterlife in Ancient Egypt is represented by canopic vases and an astonishing mummy's hand.
    In the Merovingian period, tombs were adorned with jewels, such as those in the Cormettes cemetery.
    Representations of the deceased were also found in the Middle Ages, as evidenced by a fragment of the Saint-Bertin mosaic.
    The awareness of a future death sometimes gave rise to a large-scale decorative project, as was the case for Abbé Guillaume FILLASTRE.
    In the cathedral, admire the reliquary tomb of SAINT-OMER with his bishop's attributes.
    The tomb of Eusatche DE CROY by Jacques DUBROEUCQ is remarkable for its play of colour and the double representation of the bishop, both lying down and praying.
    The funerary slabs of the canons, made of Tournai stone, will complete your discovery.
