I wonder how long it took him to carve, and produce this masterpiece. Is it painted gold or is it gold foil? Well captured with great details, Dave.

That altarpiece is very complex and much more recent than it looks!
First-rate photography, David.
Usually mono displays better detail but I must say the color version is very detailed and gives us an excellent view of what you saw in person.

Wonderful carving and, while the mono is superb, it's the colour that works best for me! 😀

A fabulous piece of work photographed here, Dave and I'm going for the colour version on this one, I can almost smell that churchy smell wafting out of the screen at me.
