Journey, Sculpture, Holy Island


"Journey" is a wooden sculpture, carved from seven elm trees, by Fenwick Lawson (1999). It is located in St. Mary's Church on Holy Island. The sculpture depicts the monks of Holy Island carrying the coffin of St. Cuthbert to safety and eventual rest in Durham Cathedral, c.875 AD, when Viking raiders threatened the island. The sculpture was exhibited in Durham Cathedral for a time and proved popular. Local people raised funds for a bronze casting of Journey, and this now stands in Millennium Square, in Durham
