photoblog image Wells - Virgin and child

Wells - Virgin and child

 

A very modern-looking sculpture, about which I can find nothing at all, so it may be a relatively recent acquisition.  Most of the Web links lead to information about sculptures on the facade of the Cathedral and I can't even find another image of this one!  Update: Tom Wilson: Anne tells me it is by the sculptor A.G. Walker, from the 1920s.  See her comment below.

Tom Wilson: I'd agree with that, Ray.

Intriguing Tom: these are modern faces
Tom Wilson: They are indeed.
I like the light in this beautiful Virgin.

superbe statue! amitiés
Tom Wilson: I think so, too, Jean Pierre
Perhaps it is a replacement for a broken one?
Tom Wilson: No, it seems not: Anne tells me it is by the sculptor A.G. Walker, from the 1920s.

A fine modern take on an ancient subject...
Tom Wilson: Indeed it is smile
it still looks like a modern sculpture Tom even if it was carved in the 1920s!
