The Roman Catholic Church assigns symbolic meaning to each of the various elements of the church building, and the architecture can be highly complex. Catholic church interiors are usually full of ornate decoration, such as fine carving and gold leaf, in testament to God's glory, as well as paintings and life-like sculptures of saints, which are greatly honoured in their own right.
