NF-SOOC-2015 Day 25: Church of St. Vivien, Saintes

Saintes is blessed with the wonderful Cathedral of St. Pierre; the Abbatiale aux Dames and many other fine churches: some extraordinary from the outside; some extraordinary from the inside... some both. The church of St.Vivien is very unremarkable outside and the inside has a sort of faded glory which I loved. This is a shot, in the dimly lit interior, of the altar and high altar... viewing on black is nice, I think.

This is my twenty-fifth image for NF-SOOC-2015 - you can read about it here -
Indeed it is...and a haven of peace and solace.

The light and clarity on the maternal figure is special. St. Vivienne? Mary? I really like the ancient feel of the space. After my week... can I meditate here, please?

@rosiekerr Thanks Rosie - it was very peaceful here... the statue above the high altar is indeed Mary and the light on her was quite remarkable.
