Description  The restoration of Palma cathedral which was carried out by GaudÝ, lasted from 1903 to 1914. Jujol is thought to have worked on it in 1910. He added his own, very personal touch to the murals in the chancel, the wall behind the choir stalls, the chandelier and the tip-up altar steps. The chandelier is a typical Jujolian creation, shaped like a large garland, composed of plants and wheat sheaves. The tip-up altar steps resemble fancy household steps, but are quite different upon closer inspection. The steps are an object in themselves, whether folded up or down; it is not easy to see what their normal position is supposed to be. When GaudÝ was in Mallorca Jujol was actually supervising operations at Casa MilÓ in Barcelona.
