Another wonderful altar in De Krijtberg. This one can be found in the porch and might be used when the gates to the nave are closed. Another wonderful piece of art I'd like to have some information about.
My (old) coffee-table book of selected postings.

@Bishop: Actually I found it quite serene; it doesn't have that bloody note that Baroque churches sometimes have.
beautiful light and colors!

@akarui: Compared to other altars, the light conditions were excellent.
Beautiful shot, nicely lit.

@Twelvebit: A quick shot, looks better than I did expect.
I watched this one several times...without leaving comments. I agree the light falling on the statue and the dark enveloped altar make for a good effect, but.....there are disturbing side things....

@Japanalia: That's the difference between a museum sample and a church: this altar is 'in use', it has to be available for people and if course you find books, papers, kneelers and all that stuff that disturbs one's art appreciation. But actually this altar is a tool.
