This Tabernacle will house the Holy Bible they use for service. It is a very old Bible.
Last August, I was asked to submit a quote to gild a tabernacle.
So I did. They excepted my figures, and the 'ball' was in motion.
This tabernacle will be carved to the churches specifications.
Paul, the wood carver, is a neighbor of mine.
This is his drawing of the tabernacle,from which I concluded my
St. Marion Catholic Church, is Eastern Orthodox. It's located in
the Nord East neighborhood of Minneapolis.(My studio turf!) I
will however be gilding this at my home studio.
This will be a surface gild, or oil gild. I will be using a particular
22k gold, as it has a brightness unsurpassed.
I will be getting more peices of this tabernacle next week. I hope
to post its progress.
