SS Peter & Paul, Old South End
These angels are good. There used to be a few more of the plaster variety lolling about, but they got rid of them. The gold, glass mosaic behind the crucifix is impressive.
The inlay is tan marble and glass mosaic.
The base of the ambo was removed, and is now serving as a pedestal for the statue of Our Lady of San Juan de los Lagos. Ordinarily, I'd pitch a fit about that, but in this case I'm not so sure. The sanctuary isn't really all that big and the base would have made it rather overwhelming.
