Ettal Abbey, Bavaria, Germany -- Let's take another look at Straub's pulpit which would be the highlight of almost any church wall were it not upstaged by his side altars here. Atop we see Archangel Michael. The canopy contains the requisite Spirited dove who will, of course, inspire the sermons. Holding up the cover from their shadows are two gilt telemans. A marble statue of St. Rupert (also by Straub) holds a statue of virgin and child that suggests the Ettal Madonna that is this church's raison d'ĂȘtre.
