DescriptionA piece of public artwork in wood (elm) by Fenwick Lawson called The Journey, showing the coffin of Saint Cuthbert of Lindisfarne being carried by monks, on its long march to Durham, the Saint's remains are now in Durham Cathedral a few minutes walk away. Durham in hosting its annual Book Festival where each year the Festival Laureate produces a new commemorative poem. In 2013 the Laureate was Paul Muldoon and the following verse is from his Festival poem, in memory of Seamus Heaney: - CUTHBERT AND THE OTTERS (Part) I think of an otter-cortege passing under a colonnade of fig-trees barren despite their show of foliage. We know neither the day nor the hour of our summons. The same Cuthbert of Lindisfarne whose body will be carried aloft by monks fleeing those same Danes. Paul Muldoon. The full poem was published in December 2013 in the Times Literary Suppliment.
