This is the tabernacle of St. Joseph Church in Macon. It is a part of the old altar (now a reredos for the new altar). Above it is the Sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross, which the Mass makes truly present and below it, but not visible in this photo is the Last Supper scene. Thus the reservation of the Most Blessed Sacrament is situated within the context in which it is consecrated, the sanctuary, the altar and the images that signify what the Mass truly is. Please note also above the tabernacle a place for exposition of the Most Blessed Sacrament. This photo was taken during a Benediction celebration which included a lengthy exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
In the link below, please look at all the post-modern tabernacles. Obviously Christ reserved in one of these is truly present. However, what does the place of reservation as well as the art of the tabernacles posted do for you? Your comments on St. Joseph and the others!
