i like the lower three panels and their realism, Tom.
Tom Wilson: It's very unusual to have such a decoration on an external wall of a cathedral in the UK - looks like a Victorian addition to me.

I is mostly very good, Tom, but the rushes seem a bit sparse.
Tom Wilson: Artistic licence, Ray smile
Très jolies décorations.
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine
Oh that's really wonderful!
Tom Wilson: Not the usual decor.

They don't produce religious artwork like this anymore Tom!
Tom Wilson: Not much external decor like this around at all, I think, Chris.
Oh, how very nice, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Rather good, isn't it?

What an amazing design here, Tom and the soft colours are just wonderful
Tom Wilson: I've seen nothing like it on a cathedral in the UK previously, Astrid.

This looks Victorian to me.
Tom Wilson: I'd agree, Chad.
An unusual item Tom. A romanticised view of things
Tom Wilson: Very much so - reminds me of Victorian children's religious books.

Apart from the good artwork, I find it very interesting, because I haven't seen such focus on Moses before.
Tom Wilson: Nor me, Louis.

I recognise two scenes from Moses' life - wonderful mosaics!
Tom Wilson: Victorian, too, I'd guess - not earlier.
That is a very fine mosaic, I suspect it needs a bot of a restoration to restore the colours a bit.
Tom Wilson: You are probably right there, Brian.
