Southwell Minster 7/7

This lovely little sculpture was on the wall in a central area of the Minster and is called Pietà, having been carved by Peter Ball. The Pietà is a subject in Christian art depicting the Virgin Mary cradling the dead body of Jesus, most often found in sculpture. As such, it is a particular form of the Lamentation of Christ, a scene from the Passion of Christ found in cycles of the Life of Christ.

Very symbolic and I can imagine it being especially revered at Easter.

I know this is modern, bit it could almost be Saxon (except for the colouration)
Brian Walbey: Based on an old style of doing things presumably.
