Some original decoration

Hidden away behind the choir stalls on the south side of the Cathedral, a small area retains its original decoration. Somehow this small amount of wall space has remained unaltered - we think since 1859 - despite the many changes that have taken place almost everywhere else over the years. Among various motifs the cross keys - a symbol of St Peter seen in many parts of the Cathedral - is visible (top left and bottom left).
