NLM Quiz no. 21: What is This Object’s Function?
I suspect that this quiz will prove to be quite difficult, so I will start with two clues. 1: The object shown in the photographs below does not have a liturgical function, properly speaking, but was used by a confraternity for a religious purpose. 2: The candlesticks to either side of it are irrelevant, but the details seen somewhat more clearly in the second photograph are very relevant. (You can click on the photos to enlarge them.) Can you guess what it was used for? Please leave your answer in the combox, and feel free to add any details or explanations
