Tabernacle prepares to ship

Here's a photo I just received this morning of the cosmatesque insert on the top part of the tabernacle throne.  It was taken in Carrara, Italy, where the entire tabernacle is being crated and prepared for shipment to SJS!


















The mosaic pattern was inspired by the Cosmati work in the closet at Saint John Lateran basilica in Rome.
