St. Vincent's Tabernacle.
Granda has crafted a unique tabernacle for a new chapel in the St. Vincent Hospital in Worcester, MA. The concept for the Ghent altarpiece enamel details was suggested by Msgr. Peter Beaulieu, the chaplain of the hospital.
The overall design was carried out by Mr. Rolf Rohn of Rohn Architects. Granda has prepared shop drawings and crafted the tabernacle over a period of 4 months.
The entire body of the tabernacle is composed of three sections. The middle section with the Agnus Dei is the door to the interior box. Angels kneeling in adoration are at the bottom section. The open palm of a hand in the sky – traditional in iconography to depict God the Father - as well as a hovering dove symbolizing the Holy Spirit, are at the uppermost section. These two sections are decorative and do not open. The arrangement and depictions follow the Ghent Altarpiece.
The chapel is located in the oncology wing of the St. Vincent Hospital.
