During mass on Sunday 10. February, you probably noticed the little shiny dots that covered the altarpiece, almost like stars. They are not stars, neither are they a result of a Paint-Ball party (to quote Dom Albert), but small markers fastened by the experts from "Vitenskapsmuseet", the museum of arts and sciences. They are now registering the entire alatar piece in preparation for its removal.
Each dot represents an unstable stone which needs to be secured. We know that lose stones have fallen off several times, at one time one almost pierced p. Dominiq's head. We must be grateful that noone has been hurt over the years! The work with the altarpiece continues, and at some time during the spring it will probably be removed and set up in its new, permanent position in Vitenskapsmuseet.
