  altar, St John Lateran
by mrclay2000

Not until you near the altar does the true artistry of St John Lateran reveal itself to the eye. Away from the cold introduction throughout the nave, beyond the religious statues in their arched niches, the altar is a fair work that (like many other churches) claims to contain apostolic relics and remains.
