Chapel

St. Christopher Chapel

  • Oberwald
The altar is stylistically attributed to the Küsnacht sculptor and painter Johannes Trubmann. The single-axis altar level with the statue of St. Christopher is crowned by a medallion with Jesus' monogram. Characteristic are the canopy screens above the flank statues, St. Genovefa on the left, St. Catherine on the right.

Three painted medallions by an unknown artist decorate the ceiling: St. Maurice, St. John of Nepomuk on the bridge and a seated Madonna of Victory next to the Tree of Knowledge. On the chancel ceiling is painted a medallion with the St. Spirit dove.
