The Newborn Baby Sculpture


The Newborn Baby Sculpture

A unique sculpture of a newborn baby appearing from the rock.

Location: St Martin the Fields, Westminster, London

Description: This is a sculpture in the external porchway of St Martin in the Fields church entitled 'In the Beginning' by Mike Chapman.

The newborn baby is shown emerging from a large lump of rock, with the umbilical cord disappearing into the rock. There are a couple of steps at the side to help you get high enough up so that you can look down on this sculpture and get a better angle.

The inscription says In the beginning was the word and the word became flesh and lived among us. John 1. 14.

Thie delightful sculpture is now in a much better location - right at the front of the colonnade at the front of the church (Traffy Sq side). (Eric Slocombe)
