New Statue Unveiled at Spanish Place

At St James' Church, Spainsh Place, a new statue of Transfigured Christ was unveiled by John Gilhooly, Director of Wigmore Hall, on Shrove Tuesday.

The statue was commissioned by Father Christopher Colven and was designed and produced by Geraint Davies from London Stonemasonry. The statue of the Transfigured Christ has been placed at  the South Porch entrance.

The initial drawing was completed in June 2011 but it took a year of presentations to various committees before it was finally approved. The statue was produced using one tonne of Portland stone and took 10 weeks to be carved.

The statue is best viewed from 6pm till 11pm in George St, W1 when it is most vividly illuminated.
