In front of the inside south wall of the 11th century south transept of Ely cathedral in Cambridgeshire is this 1960s bronze sculpture by David Wynne (entitled ‘Christ and Mary Magdalene’). The thinness of the figures is designed to command attention. It depicts the moving encounter between Jesus and Mary Magdalene on the first Easter Day. The movement of the sculpture is in the arms of the figures. As she reaches out to touch Jesus, he says, 'Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father' (John 20.17). The sculpture was first cast in 1963 for Magdalen College, Oxford. The cast at Ely was made in 1967.

Many thanks for all the much appreciated C&Cs on 'Cloudburst'.

Best wishes,
Philip

I like the fact that you have kept this simple, factual (and square). It plays on the angular character of the sculpture.
I want to go back to Ely now...

I like this sculpture a lot, Philip. It has a lovely golden tone and the artist has made the figures look as if they are engaging and yet not touching, their arms and bodies forming co-ordinating shapes suggesting closeness, rather like in ballet dancing.
