The Conversion of St Paul

The Conversion of St Paul by Bruce Denny, St Paul's, Covent Garden, London,
The Conversion of St Paul by Bruce Denny, 2010
Churchyard of St Paul's, Covent Garden
City of Westminster
London, September 2014

“The statue is by the artist Bruce Denny and although it takes a traditional form, it was created only in 2010 and unveiled by Judy Dench just last year. On the plinth are the words from Acts 26,13: ‘I saw a light from Heaven brighter than the sun.’ It is a very fine statue but it is particularly striking at night when excellent lighting becomes part of it and emphasises that the Saint is portrayed at the moment of his blinding.” (The Conversion of St Paul, Artelogical)
