The new altar set in the Church of Catherine

24 Jul

A last look in the Church of Catherine before we walk on the neighbouring parish Sofia and its magnificent church in Neo-Romanesque style at Vita Bergen. The old altar set was destroyed in the fire 1990. This new one is designed 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. I usually don’t like modern church decorations but the interior of the Church of Catherine is IMO very beautiful!
