Four living creatures

A new work for St Luke’s Episcopalian Church in Silverstream, Georgia, USA, carved in oak primarily by Aidan’s assistant, Martin Earle. The winged living figures, symbols of the Evangelists, are inspired by a 11th century ivory from Germany or Northern Italy. Originally it would have decorated the cover of an Evangiliary, a manuscript containing all four Gospels. This icon, however, will be installed 30 feet up on the ceiling of St Luke’s at the intersection of two structural beams
