After a century spent wandering the roads of Northumberland carrying the coffin of St Cuthbert, the monks of Lindisfarne stumble, somewhat dazed, into a modern precinct in Durham City.
Their shock is palpable.
As BarabaraR mentioned yesterday, the sculpture spent some time on Holy Island, near the church, before being moved to Durham. I preferred the previous location in many ways, but the present arrangement is much more challenging, a real confrontation of two different cultures.
Look out for the gentleman wandering into V2, he reappears tomorrow.
Thanks for looking,
