Bas Relief in front of St. Paul’s Cathedral

This bas relief is featured on the front of St. Paul Church. The feathered quill pen represents Paul’s writings; the traditional sword a reference to his statement “the Word of God is sharper than a two-edged sword; the sail boat and waves refer to his many journeys; the chains to his imprisonment and his statement that the Word of God cannot be chained; the crown to his words that he “run the race, fought the good fight and God has a merited crown reserved for me.”
