Artathon 8 of 47: Tam and 9 of 47: Triptych
‘Tam’, a bronze statue of a young girl, is located on a small area of grass adjacent to St Mary at the Elms Church, on the corner of Black Horse Lane and Elm Street. Created by the artist Honoria Surie – and modelled by and named after her daughter – the piece and its location hold no special significance but it’s an attractive looking piece nonetheless.
The ‘Triptych’ is a set of three limestone sculptures set in the porch of the aforementioned St Mary Church in the niches that would have been occupied by medieval equivalents prior to the reformation. They depict Christ, the Virgin Mary and St John the Evangelist and were dedicated in 2006.
