Different in a hundred ways from the preceding statue. This was in a store window. I thought it was very attractive. X-posted on the alphabet thread

A saint, but my Latin isn't sufficient to determine who, but he did something wonderful. People like to pet the dog on the left bronze plaque.

That's a really cool piece. Complex enough to keep your eyes and brain occupied.

A traditional sort of statue, Christ flanked by two saints that I think are local rather than Biblical.

One of the most unique sculptures I've ever seen.

It was created by English sculptor Danny Osborne, formed from different coloured stones, head of white jadeite, torso of green nephrite jade from British Columbia, Canada, and pink thulite from Norway. The legs of Norwegian Blue Pearl granite with the shoes being black Indian charnockite and finished with bronze shoelace tips. The statue also wears a Trinity College tie made from glazed porcelain, and three rings – Wilde's wedding ring and two scarabs, one for good luck, the other for bad luck.

Statue of an unnamed saint (no label) but it might be St. John of Nepomuk as the church is devoted to him and his remains are or might be there.
