The choir in the Church of Oscar has changed its appearance through the years. From the original choir now only the altar ring remains.
Gustav Hermansson’s neo-gothic altar was replaced during the second renovation of the church in the mid 1950’s. The New altar is a high relief made out of gold-bronze made by the sculptor John Lundqvist and pictures life and death.
The stained glass window above the altar, made by the Norwegian artist Emanuel Vigeland, was added during the first renovation of the church in the early 1920’s. The colourful stained glass window pictures the return of the lost son. Vigeland got his inspiration for this work from medieval glass paintings in French cathedrals.
The fresco-secco paintings in the choir are also made during the first renovation. The paintings pictures flowers, plants and different religious symbols placed in landscapes and are made by the Swedish artist Filip Månsson.
To enjoy all this beautiful art the HDR should be viewed in full format.
