Zamora-Cathedral

 

I'm not well-versed in chuch architecture, but I assume that this is an example of a rood screen, which I understand is quite a rare survival in Catholic countries, since many were removed during the counter-reformation.  This is certainly a highly decorative example - whatever it is!

You might need hours to sudy all the details of this rood screen - I see the wheel of the holy Catherine. Which century?
Tom Wilson: I've been unable to find specific information, Philine - I'd imagine probably 17th century?
Wow Tom, What an amazing place! Just fascinating.
Tom Wilson: Worth a stop if you are passing.
Wow, this is great. Such detail. It's great to see this type of thing. *impressed*
Tom Wilson: Quite amazing, isn't it?
I love the painting! It seems to have been done with a small palette of natural pigments.
Tom Wilson: You might well be right, Mary.
It would have been a shame if it had been removed.
Tom Wilson: Indeed it would.
That is overwhelmingly ornate Tom
Tom Wilson: Quite over the top!
Impressive spot. Perfect for a good shot like this.
Fantastic artwork... I wish my screen were bigger...
