Description

A frontal shot of a reredos. The central image of the reredos is the crucifixion of Jesus. Two scenes abut each side of the main image, probably from the life of Jesus. Each scene is framed by pointed Gothic arches with finials. Marble creates the base of the altar. Candelabras are positioned on each side left and right side of the image.
