A Year in Pictures – 27 and 28 February 2015 – St Michael and a Selfie

The Archangel Michael, leader of the armies of Heaven, disputing with Satan. This representation is on the tympanum above the north-west door of St Michael Cornhill in the City of London and is by John Birnie Philip. The high relief sculpture is part of the significant Gothic embellishments made to the church by George Gilbert Scott at the behest of the Drapers' Company in the 1850s. Mr Philip did a considerable amount of work for Scott, including the podium frieze on the Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens.

As I am a bit behind in posting this, I am including two days' worth of images. This second one is a monochrome version of a photo of myself.
