"Kirkenes kirke" (5 of 5)
The cruciform altarpiece is made in carved wood by the sculptor Kristoffer Leirdal. Starting at the base of the cross are the symbols of the four evangelists. Above them is baby Jesus in the manger symbolizing Christmas. Next, Jesus on the cross reminds the viewer of Easter and at the top the sun, representing God, sends out flames to the apostles' heads symbolizing the first Whitsun.
