The Altar

The Altar

I’m not especially religious, but I do always love the detail and craftsmanship of old religious things. From the music (J.S. Bach, Handel, Beethoven come immediately to mind) to the building architecture to the individual items like this altar, the best work was often reserved for the church. So while I may not share the religious views, I can definitely appreciate the work.
