It is very colourful...as are the Monty Python skits from which I learned about the Spanish Inquisition...
Tom Wilson: Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition, Ray smile
All that gold--misplaced priorities...
Tom Wilson: My feelings exactly, Larry.
That's a bit rich, isn't it!
Tom Wilson: Very!
C'est magnifique !
Tom Wilson: Un peu voyantes pour les protestants smile
It definitely makes a statement, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Sure enough, Ginnie.

What a wonderful thing this is Tom, enhanced by all that gold
Tom Wilson: A trifle gaudy for my tastes, Chris smile

This is just overwhelming, Tom, which I suppose is part of its intention
Tom Wilson: I imagine that is the case, Lisl - all about the power of the Church, rather than of God smile

No lazy priest can serve up there.
Tom Wilson: He'd get some exercise at least smile

That is wonderful and I love the symmetry in your picture. This must have been a grand view. This is richly decorated.
Tom Wilson: A trifle too much for Protestant sensibilities, I'd think smile
lots of graven images on display
Tom Wilson: Indeed there are!
This is certainly some fine work.
Tom Wilson: Very fine work indeed.
Holy Goldy!
Tom Wilson: smile

This is stunning Tom and quite unlike any that I have seen before. It seems strange to have such a set of steps up to the altar.
Tom Wilson: Very strange!
jolie mais un peu chargée a mon gout!! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Je suis d'accord, Jean Pierre!
