Masterpieces

 

In the cathedral of Copenhagen, Vor Frue Kirke (Church of Our Lady), Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen's famous statue of the resurrected Christ stands for all to see. Completed in 1821 it has since been copied by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints numerous times. In front of the alter is a baptismal fount in the form of an angel holding a large scallop shell made in Italian carrara marble.
