The Journey

By mistere
The Journey, in St Marys Church on Lindisfarne. The Sculpture depicts the monks of Lindisfarne carrying St.Cuthbert's body on the first stage of its journey to Durham. The sculpture is made up of 35 piece of elmwood, carved principally with a chain-saw. A bronze copy has been placed in the Millennium Square in Durham, marking the start and finishing places of the journey of St Cuthbert's coffin between 698 and c920.

It's a wonderful work. It seems so right here - in Durham it always seems to me that the monks are blinking in surprise as they emerge into a modern precinct...
