The Breedon Angel - glicée print

The Breedon Angel - glicée print

The priory church of St. Mary & St. Hardulph is perched high above the town of Breedon-on-the-Hill in North-West Leicestershre.  Within it's walls are to be found some of Britain's finest examples of Anglo-Saxon sculptures. This artwork is the result of Michelle's study of one of the striking angels.


The angel's arm is raised in blessing, whilst the gesture of the hand was often used in Byzantine art to spell out  the letters IC XC, the first and last letters of the Greek words Jesus (IHCOYC) Christ (XPICTOC).  The three fingers were also used to represent the Trinity.
