Toes

The detail of a statue on the new St Pancras church. New, as in built in the early 1800's. A wee design flaw exists in these figures. They were made a bit too high, so had to be squeezed in a bit in the middle to fit. feet are ok though.

Am away for a few days so wont be doing my usual visiting.

I only read about St. Pancras once, in a book of saints for children. He was called St. Pancratius there. Good to know that he wasn't just remembered in that book.

What you consider 'new' is absolutely mind-boggling to me!

I love the detail that you have captured. Fancy putting toes into a statue that are hardly ever going to be seen by anyone.

Nice sharp crisp image, Mo. Enjoy your break ...

Would you say the figures were about a foot too high?
