As we walk inside the Church of Catherine you can see that the altar has a modern style. The altar set from 1732 and the pulpit from 1753, designed by Carl Fredrik Adelcrantz, was destroyed in the fire 1990. So was also the altarpiece from 1735 by Lorentz Gottman which presented how Jesus Christ where carried in the temple. The new altar set is created by the sculptor Liss Eriksson and the textile artist Kajsa Melanton and is named “Närvaro genom frånvaro”, Presence by absence. It presents a Calvary scene which contains the cross, the shroud and the crown of thorns.
