This photo was taken in a Rome church. The permanent/main altar seen on the left was designed and built by the one and only Michelangelo. Meanwhile...
...meanwhile, we see that it is not used. Instead, this clutter of which an Italian art historian colleague of ours calls the "prevailing bunk of having no taste" is what is instead used.
The pretypify of having no taste? Mum always said: "Kids, make sure everything matches."
The next time you enter such a historic downtown baroque parish as this and notice such mod candles as these, such a dining room chair as this, an ambo of this sort, such a stool and lumber platform as seen here, just feel bad and instruct your kids to do better.
