About Christmas - Baldachin of Sant Bartomeu, Sant Julià de Lòria

The baldachin in the Chapel of Sant Bartomeu, in the parish of Sant Julià de Lòria, is one of the most important works of religious art in the Principality of Andorra. It is a canopy consisting of a polychromed wooden panel with a central motif of Christ in Majesty surrounded by four angels, above which is written: At the name of Jesus, every knee should bow. Heaven, Earth and Hell. The panel includes Gothic and Renaissance elements, allowing the work to be dated to the 15th century. It is therefore one of the few examples of Renaissance painting that still exists in Andorra today.
