Snapshot: Angel on Cathedral of St. John the Divine

This angel graces the West Front (main entrance) of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.  Although work began in 1892, the cathedral is still a work in progress.

Construction of the West Front commenced between 1925-1933, but relatively new sculptures and columns have recently been added.  Some of the work is created by members from the community, who are chosen and trained in the art of masonry, much like an apprentice in Medieval artisan society.
