Panel with Angels

J. D. Sedding

c. 1870

South wall of the choir

St. Martin's Church, Low Marple, nr Stockport

This unusual panel, a raised piece with a metal frame, is in muted natural, earthy tones, with careful detailing (each feather of the wings is distinct, and the pattern on the right-hand angel's robes disappears convincingly into the folds). [Commentary continues below.]
