SU4829 : Winchester Cathedral, High Altar & Screen

taken 4 years ago, near to Winchester, Hampshire, Great Britain

Winchester Cathedral, High Altar & Screen
Winchester Cathedral, High Altar & Screen
This is a view of the High Altar and stone screen at Winchester Cathedral. The pattern on the altar, and backing screen, depicts a wave during the day and at night. Although all the statues on the screen were destroyed during the civil war they were replaced during the 19th century. Unfortunately there is no record as to the original design hence the choice of statue subjects was determined as considered appropriate. For a view of the 'Holy Hole' refer to picture SU4829 : Holy Hole, Winchester Cathedral.
