Shrine of the Divine Mercy, located at Holy Trinity Abbey.  The large image of Christ behind the altar is made of inlaid multicolored formed-wood pieces in a unique artistic manner known as "Marquetry" or "Intarsia".   This is the first example of such large scale use of this art in church decoration since medieval times. @kil-11.jpg (20840 bytes)
