V&A - bread of life

"Hungry for the Bread of Life" Paten

I loved this silver paten when I saw it. It is inspired by the words of St John's Gospel, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never be hungry." The figures were added to a plain paten. I found the shadows created very intriguing. The shadows in the photo aren't as sharp as I'd like but it's not that easy with a compact camera with autofocus through a glass cabinet (always blame the tools!) Perhaps I'll just have to find time to go back another day.
