THE WOOD FINISH IS MEDIUM DARK BROWN~PERHAPS CHERRY FINISH ON MAHOGANY~ BUT SINCE THAT IS SUBJECTIVE~ WE WILL LET THE VIEWER DECIDE BASED UPON THE NUMEROUS PICTURES.
THE GOLDEN HUE IS SEEN WHEN USING FLASH. FOR THE MOST PART, HOWEVER, THE CORPUS IS A RICH, DEEP, BROWN WITH AMBER HIGH LIGHTS.
CATHOLIC DEVOTION WHICH WOULD PAIR WELL WITH THIS.... ONE COULD HAVE A CHAPEL IN THEIR HOME. WITH SUCH AIDS ONE COULD PURSUE A HIGHER SPIRITUAL LIFE. THIS WOULD ALSO BE WELL SUITED TO USE IN AN ORATORY.
