Most Sacred Heart of Jesus altar in chancel area

Catalogue note author
Agata Felczyńska


The altar was made in 1826, during the reconstruction after the fire of 1815 and stylistically refers to the previous interior. With some simplification, it replicates the structure of the high altar of the church. The way the altar finial of the abundant ornament, the shape and framing of the pedestal panels or the pillar decorations were formed lead to conclude that the two altars were created in one workshop.
