St Francis Takes Shape

Amid building works within and without, another set of scaffolding goes up, as the Mosaic Workshop moves in to begin work on St Francis. With its pair of St Anthony, these are the work of Leonard McCombe RA - you can see the proposed design here.

Full sized cartoons are being applied; since the background features dozens of intricately detailed birds, it is something of a jigsaw puzzle. We hope that work will be finished by the autumn.

I can't wait to see the finished mosaics,they look like they will be particularly special in a building full of special things. Are all the plans for the Cathedral mosaics completed and just waiting to commence or are they still being decided upon?
