I like this a lot...very clean and orderly, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Mmm - more Protestant than Catholic - apart from the saints smile
I like that the Saints are on shelves!
Tom Wilson: Shelved for eternity smile
I love the painted plinthed figures on the wall Tom.
Tom Wilson: It's a nice feature, isn't it?
This is when "simpler" is a relative word, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Indeed!

After they've stuck all this iconography around you'd think they would match this with an elaborate altar Tom
Tom Wilson: I think this was a side chapel, Chris - the main altar is coming up.

It certainly looks simple for an RC cathedral, Tom
Tom Wilson: A side chapel, I think, Lisl - the main altar is coming up.

The RC church ran out of gold and now they are doing silver - or so it seems. Opulent.
Tom Wilson: Wait until you see the main altar!
I like the ceiling view here.
Tom Wilson: Yes, that's a very attractive ceiling, isn't it?
I see you can't count either tom. No matter they have all been worth seeing
Tom Wilson: A lifelong impediment, Bill smile
Very impressive, I like the figurines on the wall.
Tom Wilson: Everyone seems to like those!
belle intérieur! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Merci, Jean Pierre!

What a beautiful ceiling! The structure looks rather elaborated in my view.
Tom Wilson: Wait until you see tomorrow's! But, I agree, it is a very fine ceiling.
simple and majestic at the same time Tom... wonderful sculptures surrounding the sanctuary....petersmile
Tom Wilson: This was just a side chapel - the main altar is shown over the next two days.
