Old St. Mary's, Shelby

Most Pure Heart of Mary, to be exact. Very unusual. I've never seen a ceiling quite like that. The high, narrow sanctuary is different. Notice how high those statues are placed flanking the altar. I don't quite know what to say about the chandelier. The Stations of the Cross look like they're wonderful work. I wonder what became of them. There'll be more on this parish, both this building and the one that replaced it in the 1920's as the week goes by.

The sanctuary proportions seem "restricted," but the body of the church has pleasing proportions ;-)
