St Martin's Church of Tessenderlo

St Martin's Church houses a fine early-16C rood screen, with three finely carved arcades resting on six pillars. Eight large statues of the Evangelists and Fathers of the Church stand in the arches. There are four medallions above the arches adorned with small figures in Medieval dress within scenes depicting the Life of the Virgin. Further up, beneath open-work canopies, other figures enliven scenes of the Life of Christ. The sculpted font dates from the 12C.
