The high altar in the church in Łapsze Wyżne was built shortly after the construction of the temple in Rococo style, around 1777. It represents a single-storey, single-axis reredos with gates, decorated with a rococo ornament, typical of the time of creation. Together with the high altar, a second side altar and a pulpit, it forms an integral church decor, made by the workshop of artists from Kežmarok – Johann and Franciszek Feeg. One of funders of the altar is i.a. Jan Joanelli of Tolvano. The altar and its sculptures are examples of so-called Rococo of Spiš – a style that gradually developed from the 1740s and was characterised by exceptional decorativeness of means of expression.
