More Watts

These three images are from the alter in the Watts Chapel.  The designs were very intricate and I found it almost impossible to decipher the wording which is cleverly hidden.  It is hard to believe that the raised work is built up on a surface of chicken wire, hessian and gesso plasterwork.  The video, which is on display in the new gallery, goes through the various stages of construction and is extremely interesting. Having looked at the panel above again I think it says 'The Tabernacle of the Lord'.  I must consult my reference book for an explanation.

This was a very large panel on display in the new gallery.
