The Mystic Lamb, an extra spiritual benefit

Don’t miss this world-famous masterpiece by the Van Eyck Brothers in Ghent. Discover the eventful history of the Mystic Lamb at three places in Ghent:

  • ‘The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb’ is a world-class work of art, one of the most influential paintings ever made. See with your own eyes the intensive renovation work that began in 2012 on this religious masterpiece in the MSK. Unbelievably fascinating! Watch the restorers at work with tiny brushes right before your eyes, removing layers of varnish and later additions and touching up blemishes.
  • At St Bavo’s Cathedral, where the Mystic Lamb belongs, you will find all the panels that are not currently being restored.
  • Then head to Ghent city museum, STAM, for a spot of detective work to track down the world-famous missing panel, ‘The Just Judges’. Dive headfirst into all the conspiracy theories and speculations.
