A monumental wall hanging by Franka Lechner defines the sacral room of the hospital chapel. Indeed, Lechner's piece can be seen as a "pictoral rug" as its structure resembles a painting. Painterly structures, atmosphere, depth and light were conveyed on the material. The shape of the cross so often selected and the meditative emanation of the "pictorial rug" give Lechner's work a sacral dimension that so harmoniously fits into the local setting of the chapel.
