Canopy and Crucifix, High Altar, Sagrada Familia

Canopy and Christ on the cross, Sagrada Familia [enlarge]

Above the High Altar at Sagrada Familia's temple, there is an Expressionist “Crucifixion of Christ”, a bronze version of a work by sculptor Carles Mani i Roig (1866-1911). The sculpture hangs from a beautiful canopy over a block of porphiry from Iran acting as a very austere table.
