Photographer's Note

Part of the dramatic sculpture behind the altar of St Michael church in Vienna. This old church was originally built in the early 1200s, but parts of the interior were redecorated in the rococo style in 1782. This wonderful sculpture is "The Fall of the Angels" by Lorenzo Mattielli, made of alabaster and gold, depicting writhing bodies falling from the clouds.
