Liverpool, sculpture

This statue in the grounds of St Lukes Anglican Church of a Winged Ox is apparently a symbol of St Luke.

  1. I'll asked my son-in-law to take us for a drive over there. He lives close to the area. This is very interesting.

  3. A winged ox appears on the coat of arms of St. Luke. This is a fascinating sculpture. The building below is interesting as well.

  4. Did not know there was a connection between St. Luke and oxen. Hmmm... maybe that will come up in a trivia game someday! :)

  5. In the Catholic Dict. it says that the winged ox is associated with Luke 'cause his gospel emphasizes Christ's sacrifice on the cross and an ox was the animal of sacrifice .

  6. That's very different! I would not have known it was for St. Luke or why.
