I have this hand made, hand carved religious altar that I believed was made in Louisiana. I am from Louisiana and it appears that the wood is cypress. I don't know how old this piece is but I would say early 1920s or so. It is about 24" wide and 24" tall. The detail is amazing and someone spent a lot of time putting this wonderful piece of art together. If anyone could please help me with any information about this piece; age? period? maker? religion? value? etc. There are little drawers on the piece along with a swinging gate. It looks like small candles were put on the piece but there are no residues of wax. Thank you very much and any help is greatly appreciated.
