This postcard view of the interior of the Oshogbo All Saints Church pulls the viewer into a seat at one of its pews. It provides a snapshot of a quiet moment within the sacred space where all the details of the edifice can come into focus. The orientation is rather different than many modern churches due to the sparse seating. The pulpit is reminiscent of those found in cathedrals. The central arch gives a sense of generous height within which one can imagine the soaring voices of a congregation.
