The Large Cross

Made in Perspex and wood, this cross was designed by the sculptress Josaphina de Vasconcellos and made by five boys in residential care. For several years it hung in St. Martin’s in the Fields in London, and then was exhibited in St. Pauls Cathedral, London and Liverpool Cathedral. Josephina has produced many sculptures including “The Holy Family”, on show in Manchester Cathedral. She is now into her nineties, but continues to sculpt in the Lake District.
