Unitarian Memorial Church #3

[singlepic id=1722 w=850 float=center]


So I messed up yesterday. I left my daily post in “draft” mode for the entire day and didn’t pull the trigger until late. So if you didn’t see it on Facebook or Google+ then check it out here.  You won’t regret it, I promise. It is actually a good segue for today’s image.

Where yesterday’s “vertorama” gives you a broad view of the church, today’s takes you in tight to one of the detailed carvings on the pulpit. And that is also a nice segue to a factoid about the church (in case you are interested).

The angel you see here on the front of the pulpit is carved from English Bog Oak, imported (of course) from England for the project.  The carving was done by of one of 45 or so Bavarian wood carvers that Henry Huttleson Rogers brought over for the project (with their families). The Bavarian artisans carved the intricate woodwork throughout the church and the parish house. The intricate details in the pews, and (as you can see in this image) the pulpit and the work around the pipes of the organ.

With all of my images, click on the image to see a larger version.

  1. Great idea and POV, I am usually so excited when I get into a place like this I cannot, or do not think creatively enough to take something like this, so congrats, it’s a beauty

  2. Your POV makes it very dramatic for me (that’s good!) and with your warm toning and the nice blue windows it’s a real eye-catcher.
