Christ Church Cathedral - Downtown Nashville

Christ Church Cathedral - Downtown Nashville

While I was taking an HDR picture of the Pipe organ in the back, I turned around to get a picture of the intricate carving at the front of the auditorium. I am not up on my cathedral terminology, so I do not know what to call this. Unfortunately, What I didn't realize until I got home was that if I had moved back about a foot, I would not have inadvertently removed the head of Jesus in the Stained Glass window, which I was not even focusing on.

Flickr user kentondickerson added this comment: the carving is called a "reredos". Which means a carving that serves as the backdrop for an alter.
