This statue of Christ with outstretched arms stands at one side of the main bulding at Launde Abbey. A friend described it to me as one you either loved or hated. I really wasn't sure about it until I put it next to an image of a cross, then I realised a visual similarity. To me, it's as if the arms are breaking away from the cross in an embrace, and I have come to love the statue. I would love to read the artist's commentary.
