Long Description:
"An der Choraußenseite befindet sich eine volkstümliche Darstellung des Heilsgeschehens als sog. "Lebensbaum". Das Werk ist vermutlich um 1460 entstanden und stellt in der Gegenüberstellung des Alten und des neuen Bundes das Erlösungswerk, die Überwindung von Sünde und Tod durch den Kreuztod Christi, dar." (visit link)
