http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fumie above photo also from here.
I have never made my way to a museum to see one personally, however, these online photos give such an up close look it`s the next best thing. From the Tokyo National Museum.
I first heard of fumie in the novel Silence which I read a long time ago and didn`t like for reasons I forget. Anyway looking at photos of real fumie it raises many questions in my mind. Would I have the courage to NOT step on it, to stand up for my faith when put to the test? How is stepping on this any different from some of the liturgical abuses CathCon puts up on his site?
