Commissioned by the Fabric Committee of Winchester Cathedral and Friends of Dean Garnier Garden
Created in stainless steel and Kirkstone Green slate, this 2.5 metre tall sculpture was commissioned for the Dean Garnier Garden at Winchester Cathedral.
A swirling shoal of fish rise upwards from the rock reflecting the changing colours of the sky and accentuating the surface of the fish.
The sculpture relates well to its ecclesiastic site close to the Cathedral and works in harmony with the garden.
Inspired by a recent discovery of a water source in the garden and fish as an ancient symbol for Christianity and Baptism where Jesus asked fishermen Simon and Andrew to ‘ follow me and I will make you fishers of men.’
