The Christ Child By Mike Chapman

I just love this sculpture!

The Christ Child

This beautiful sculpture lies in the heart of London. It is called 'The Christ Child' and was commissioned to celebrate the Millennium by commemorating the birth of Christ.  It is by the talented sculptor Mike Chapman and is positioned beneath the portico of St Martin In The Fields, just off Trafalgar Square.

I love the way that the child is portrayed, attached to its umbilical cord on a huge and rough Portland Stone. For me it seems to suggest a beautiful child at the moment of birth arriving into an imperfect and harsh world. What does it say to you?
