Abstract

The altar was presumably created shortly after the temple was built, i.e. after 1906. It was built in the eclectic style, with dominating neo-gothic and neo-renaissance elements. The main area of the altar contains a painting of the Holy Family, painted in the 17th century. The sliding panel features a painting of Christ Crucified, and the sides are flanked by sculptures of St. Peter (on the left) and St. Paul (on the right). In the finial, a statue of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus is placed in a semi-spherical recess. Unfortunately, archival sources neither reveal the author nor funders of the work.
