Kaarma Church Inside

Kaarma kirik

The inside of Kaarma church is rich with unique decorations. Unfortunately I haven't had the time yet to work out what everything is or what it represents.

A wooden statue of an old man stands below the pulpit, something tells me this isn't just any old man. Unfortunately when I wrote this I did not know who this is.
