Fall of the Angels - Michaelerkirche ( View Larger). by 


The high altar was designed in 1782 by Jean-Baptiste d’Avrange. It is decorated with the monumental alabaster Rococo sculpture “Fall of the Angels” (1782) by the Italian sculptor Lorenzo Mattielli. It represents a cloudburst of angels and cherubs, falling from the ceiling towards the high altar. It was the last major Baroque work completed in Vienna.

    Wow. This is like the wall behind Pacino’s desk in Devil’s Advocate!
    Like how you frame your sculptures… it’s often not necessary to see them in context with their surroundings.
    Great shot!

  • Exactly!!! That’s what I thought when I first saw this Altar.
    Thanks for the Compliment.
