Cloud of Witnesses II

Two bishops guarding the western door at the Seville Cathedral. Notice the magnificent details on the bishops' vestments.

The Seville Cathedral is the largest Gothic cathedral in the world. It has the largest and richest altar in the entire world decorated by gold, the work of one single artist, Pierre Dancart. It is truly a splendid, splendid place of pilgrimage.

Such excellent sculptures! Definitely remind us of the need for sacred art and sacred spaces.
