Ely Madonna

I never thought I'd find myself defending David Wynne's Madonna in the the Ely Cathedral Lady Chapel but the comments resulting from Fr Dwight Longenecker's blog posting on 27 January (Ely Ely Lama Sabacthani) on do at least warrant circulation of Richard Clover's remarkable photograph of the Lady. Beauty was ever in the eye of the beholder! And, for the record, Fr Dwight, I think if you check with your episcopal brother-in-law, the nuances of the commissioning of this admittedly controversial statue are a tad more complex than you make out.
