This is really superb, an explosion of cherubs, in full riot formation, coming through
the rays of sunlight, being led by two cherubs holding up the magnificent coat of arms.
A most regal procession doesn't get much more fast action compressed than is found
in this representation. The incredible carving of everything is so precise and detailed
to leave little to the imagination in terms of what is going on. Your angle is beautiful,
a truly magnificent photo.

@Phil Morris: Thanks a lot, Phil! Baroque altars provide enough details for trying a different angle. Here the stylite in the foreground looked like he's still waiting for his ascension. I wished there were more altars like this one in my region!
