The Dancing Madonna

Isn't this stunning? It's the statue of The Dancing Madonna, from St Luke's Church, Duston. It was taken by Lis Mullen, minister of Carver United Reformed Church. It's something to meditate on. Look at the locked gaze between Jesus and Mary. Isn't the joy and thrill of the dance astounding? This is one of those pictures I can look at for ages. Thanks, Lis, for permission to share it here.

    Hi Blogger
    That is a beautiful statue. Who is the artist? and do you think Lis would mind her picture being copied?

    The sculptor is Maureen Coatman (who also created a famous statue of the racehorse Red Rum). The statue is a memorial to my mother, Julie Buchanan who died in 1978 aged 36 after a life long illness. Her Husband, my father, was vicar of the parish from 1968 – 1979 and the statue was dedicated in 1980.
