The church at Kvikne has remained relatively untouched since its building in 1654, and managed even to evade the damaging forces of the puritan movement, which came to Norway in the 1880s, and which was responsible for wholesale destruction of murals, carvings, figures etc., many of which dated back hundreds of years. In a relatively short period, much of Norway's ecclesiastical treasures were burned, disappeared or, in the case of wall paintings, whitewashed over.
The small church at Kvikne, Hedmark, managed to survive this purge and remains relatively as it was during the 17th and 18th centuries. One of its more precious artefacts is the baroque alterpiece, which to the best of my knowledge, has not been restored or "cleaned" since it was initially installed.
The image is a flat projection panorama of the alterpiece:
Taken with a 200mm lens mounted on a Roundshot drive and head, the image allows one to see in detail the figures, many of which are quite hard to distinguish properly from ground level.
