O Lord, open my lips and my mouth shall declare your praise!
Altars like that are one of the reasons why I attend the Traditional Latin Mass - there is always something inspiring written or carved on the front for our edification as opposed to wooden "tables".
There does certainly seem as though modern churches lack a lot of the details and flourishes found in traditional churches. The difference reminds me of all the random details in "Where's Waldo?" vs a plain brick wall.
