Toledo Cathedral: Capilla Mayor Altarpiece (1504)

Capilla Mayor Altarpiece (1504)

Central area of the huge altarpiece of gilded and painted wood (1504) stretching to the ceiling in the Capilla Mayor. A magnificent example of Gothic art, it is overflowing with intricate detail and summarizes the entire New Testament with life-sized figures. In the center is a great pyramidal monstrance.
