The Christ Child
|The Christ Child|
By Mike Chapman
I so love this sculpture!
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?
