A masterpiece of colonial art in solid mahogany overlaid with sheets of pure gold... ingeniously saved by a coat of whitewash from the gold-greedy hands of Henry Morgan at the time of the sack of Old Panama. It is now restored to its original glory and reverently viewed by millions in the 'Church of the Golden Altar.'"
