Like the ancient Egyptian mythological bird the Phoenix, which destroyed itself only to rise again from the ashes, the paintings point to the hope of resurrection and immortality. These paintings have been exhibited in ten English cathedrals for up to two months.
“The impact of the panels upon the Chapter House was enormous. Without doubt the Phoenix Paintings are amongst the most impressive that we have seen for some time. It has been a joy and privilege to have them here in Wells. They are of the highest calibre and ought, if at all possible, to be exhibited as widely as possible.”
Canon Dr. Geoffrey Walker, Wells Cathedral
“They are fine pieces of art which speak eloquently of a distinctly Christian theme in a new and imaginative fashion.”
Canon J. Inge, Vice-Dean, Ely Cathedral.
