Christ rests in peace

Christ rests in peace
17 February 2013

During Lent 2013, Nic Fiddian-Green’s sculpture Christ rests in peace is being displayed at the High Altar of Southwark Cathedral.

The depiction of the head of Christ (in silver/grey) with a crown of thorns, picked out in gold, is displayed on an octagonal table, which could also be considered an altar, reflecting on the sacrifice that Christ made for the people of the world when he died on the cross.
