Oxburgh Churches 2/7

Pride of place, up at the east end, in the chapel of St.Margaret and Our lady at Oxburgh, goes to the wonderful Antwerp triptych. Constructed in the 19th.century from a variety of 16th.century resources, it dominates the small chapel in a way these things rarely do in the cathedrals in which they are usually found.

They are hiding the stained glass windows, Brian...perhaps they portray a rude scene?
Brian Walbey: Perhaps not Ray, but if you get time browse the web for an online Bible and quickly read through the book Song of Songs, not what one expects from the Bible!

Brian Walbey: I'll take your word for that Chad. yes not what I was expecting to see in such a small chapel.

This is definitely full of Pride Brian.. great shot!
Brian Walbey: yes not what I was expecting to see in such a small chapel.
I guess this is the Roman Catholic chapel Brian. Incredibly ornate
Brian Walbey: Indeed it must be Bill, not what I was expecting to see in such a small chapel.

Crikey! They did not believe in doing things by half did they? The detail is incredible.
Brian Walbey: It came as a great surprise to find this inside such a small chapel, truly a fine work of art.

Surprising for an English Church, but perhaos not for an English RC Chruch
Brian Walbey: Being dedicated to Our Lady I presume it is catholic which perhaps explains this fine reredos.
Very fantastical!!
Brian Walbey: I think it must be because the chapel seems to be catholic in nature, plus they could be showing off their wealth as well I suppose.
It really is quite amazing how it just fits, Brian!
Brian Walbey: It must have been made especially for the chapel, amazing isn't it.
