I had a tentative route of things to spot. The Marx Memorial Library was closed but all others on the wishlist were ticked-off, and many other gems were spotted along the way.
After a tea break near Smithfield, I decided to explore the Church of St Bartholomew the Great – an enjoyable break.
I learned that it is believed that St Bartholomew was flayed alive – and I learned this from the first Damien Hirst piece that I have ever seen.
I was well impressed with this statue. It was calling out to be touched – but I refrained. I just stood for a while and admired.
A tweet this morning from LookUpLondon listed this piece as one of the 15 unusual things that one might spot in London Churches – On my visit, I probably only visited four or five, but it is definitely up near top of list.
As good a reason as any to blog and share photographs – I have included some of the ones that did not focus properly. An accidental mood effect.
