Description The Groot Vleeshuis was designed by Gillis De Sutter and built between 1407 and 1419. Meat houses were covered markets where sales were centralised in order to check the meat's freshness and quality. Private sales at home were forbidden. Sixteen tripe stores were built onto the south-eastern side of the Groot Vleeshuis between 1542 and 1543. For reasons of hygiene, these separate stores had to be used for the sale of entrails, skin, and other remains from slaughtered animals.The Groot Vleeshuis has a splendid and remarkable truss. A chapel with three large pointed arch windows was constructed in the building between 1446 and 1448. The chapel contains a 15th century wall painting which depicts a Worship Service.From the end of the 19th century, it was also possible to sell meat at home. The Groot Vleeshuis was then used for various other purposes; it became a post office, storage depot, exhibition area, and a banquet hall in that order. It is now used as a covered market for regional tourism and products.
Onay Gençtürk, Ghent Member Since August 2009 Artist Statement I love to take pictures! Although I have many interests, photography has always been my first passion. I carry my camera often with me and I just shoot what I see and what I like… and somehow, I seem to find a way to incorporate the creation of lasting images.
I love to take black and white or color photos... and once I have my tripod around on a cloudy day, I might take some hdr pictures too.
As I’m from Istanbul and I live in Belgium, therefor my first 2 photo galleries also got those names :D
