High altar

Catalogue note author
Maria Działo


High altar in the Church of Michael the Archangel in Mszana Dolna was built probably not long after the new temple came into being in 1888-1901. The work was made in Neo-Gothic style and has forms typical of this era: a predominance of vertical elements and a soaring body, as well as a number of decorations taken from Gothic era: pointed arches, pinnacles, traceries, blind windows, quatrefoils and others. In the main axis of the altar there is a statue of St. Michael the Archangel, a patron of the church.
