The Floating Saints of Mitla and Other Apparitions

What's wrong with this picture?  Okay maybe not "wrong" , how about , "What's just a little off about this?".  As in, where is the furniture?  Please notice,  the sparkly caped Soledad and all her cohorts are floating on the wall.  There's no table, or box or retablo or anything except a simple bracket holding each one.  It's as if the old altarpiece disappeared but the saints remained.  This church at Mitla is an old one and I like it but there's definitely something different about it.
