Dusetos-Holy Trinity Church-altarpiece

 

This has more the character of an Orthodox icon than a Catholic image.

Yes...I see you point, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ray.
I do quite like the 3D effect Tom.
Tom Wilson: Certainly different from the usual altar piece.
That's kind of fascinating - I can stare at it for a while....

Yes it does. It's simply amazing..
Tom Wilson: The amount of silver on there is amazing!
It is rather creepy . The Baby reminds me of the awful Dominic Cummings
Tom Wilson: I've always found Christian iconography rather macabre - and, now you mention it... smile

You are right Tom, but of course this is in the East and influences rub off.
Tom Wilson: Indeed they do - perhaps it was an ecumenical gift at some time?
Beautiful image. Excellent
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Roland - still unable to comment on your pics!
If I didn't know otherwise I would agree with you that is does have the look of the Orthodox religion to it.
Tom Wilson: Yes, it is very orthodox icon-like.
Yes, it certainly does in this one instance.
Tom Wilson: Very different from the usual paintings in Catholic churches.
