Someone did a nice job with this when the Catholic Church moved the altars out from the back wall and had the priest face the congregation. I remember the old way.

I agree with Bob! I, too, remember the old way! This is lovely and so is your capture for the day, Ciel! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!

The paintings are wonderful, full of rich colors, over top the warm wood. The alter looks icy cold, in contrast.

Very ornate and yet quite simple if that makes any sense. Very attractive, too. Gives the folks something to look at if things get a little boring. ;-)

This conveys the majesty of the Church without being overly ornate.
