Morelos. Zacualpan: the Rosary chapel 2.

In the second of our posts on the Rosary Chapel at Zacualpan we feature the finely wrought pulpit.

Probably contemporary with and in similar style to the altarpieces, this handsome pulpit may also the work of the López taller, its panels ornamented with Rococo inspired reliefs in gold and red.

Of special note is the gilded canopy topped with angel heads and the statue of a wingless archangel, probably San Miguel again.
