Major New Sculpture on display - 12 February - 30 March
Nic Fiddian-Green has been commissioned to create a new sculpture, 'Christ Rests in Peace', for the front of the High Altar at Southwark Cathedral, London. The work, which will be on display from 12 February to 30 March 2013, will be the focus for contemplation for those who visit the Cathedral during Lent and Holy Week.
Nic Fiddian-Green, one of Britain's most accomplished and innovative equine sculptors is well known for his beguiling monumental horse's heads that are displayed in high profile places, such as the 33' head that stands at Marble Arch. 'Christ Rests in Peace' will likewise be equally impressive and striking. It is an 8' head of Jesus cast in lead and brought to life with Nic's ability to create character and form through his meticulous methods of colouration. The crown of thorns, 18" high will be finished in gold leaf and the whole head will be beautifully lit from beneath radiating a magnificent aura.
Speaking of this work Nic Fiddian-Green said: 'I have been working on the subject of the face of Christ for over 20 years 'with no place in mind', so when I was invited to install a work at Southwark, I realised it was all out of my hands. It is a great privilege and opportunity to reveal this work in a sacred and spiritual place. I am so honoured that this work is at the very centre of our capital and will be seen by the Cathedral's many visitors."
The Very Revd Andrew Nunn, Dean of Southwark, comments: 'We are delighted to have 'Christ Rests in Peace' in Southwark Cathedral throughout Lent. For so many Christians singing the hymn 'The head that once was crowned with thorns' is a regular reminder of the reality of the crucifixion. Nic Fiddian-Green's representation of the head of Jesus crowned with thorns is powerful not just because of its sheer size but also because when you look beyond the thorns you see the humanity in the face of Christ'.
Nic Fiddian-Green will speak about his work and the inspiration for 'Christ Rests in Peace' at Southwark Cathedral during Lent and details can be found below. Admission to the work is during Cathedral opening hours and is free of charge.
