Burgos Cathedral III

The St. Anne's Chapel of Burgos Cathedral in Castile y León. The gilded retablo is by Gil de Siloé and Diego de la Cruz.

Sts. Joachim and Anna. Notice them standing above Jesse's Tree.

The Resurrection of Christ panel.

At the top of Jesse's Tree is the Virgin Mary and the Child Jesus.

Some vestments on display in the chapel:

Awesome vestments!

Argent do you know what they are made of?
God bless.

Those vestments are breathtaking-probably for the priest too since they look heavy!
