Sculpture For Christmas

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?
