St Paul’s Cathedral – Mosaics

IMG_3741 IMG_3751

As a new member of the clergy to the Diocese, I was invited to an evening tour of St. Paul’s cathedral a couple of weeks ago. I was late having put the wrong time in my diary, but even so it was an interesting evening.

The picture on the left is the pattern for the one of the mosaics in the cathedral itself and you can just see the actual thing in the picture on the right, just above the arch. If you have ever visited St. Paul’s you will know how amazing the mosaic decorations are and to think each one was drawn out like this one before being created on the walls and ceiling, demonstrates the high level of crafts people involved.

  1. We joined an interpreted tour in the Cathedral some time ago and saw wonderful mosaics. Fantastic art work.
