One of Denmark’s oldest stone churches, Elmelunde Kirke dates back to 1080. The vaults were painted by the ‘Elmelunde master’, whose awesome frescoes span everything from the Creation to Christ in judgment. There’s a splendid serpent in the Garden of Eden, with a snake-like body and human head; Herod’s soldiers dressed in medieval armour; a devil leading the damned into the monstrous mouth of hell; and several hunting scenes, reminders of the shortness of human life.
