Only the best: meet the baroque!
Baroque by definition: "Limbs swirling all over in the glory of contemplation." 3-D was the idea and that's the effect! Thus, we contemplate the sacred mysteries and our ultimate end: death, judgement and heaven or hell.
My favorite about the baroque is that it combines so very many mediums of art: fresco, oil on canvas, mosaic, sculpture, glass, etc. We see marble, plaster and all the rest building itself up towards the heavens for the glory of God and the sanctification of men!
