Bürgersaalkirche: Ceiling (pt. 2)

Posted by MadScientist (Düsseldorf, Germany) on 26 July 2011 in Art & Design.

M•A•R•I•A: Richly stuccoed frames with the monograms of Joseph, Maria, and Jesus transform the Bürgersaalkirche into a residence of the Holy Family.

Absolutely beautiful ceiling, most royal and religious at the same time.

@Phil David Morris 2011: That fits, as St Mary is called the queen of heaven.

@Ronnie 2¢: Rather unusual compared to the restorations in the other parts of Germany, where a lot of churches were rebuilt in a simplified and less ornate way.
