'Bright Magnus'

St. Magnus Church, Birsay, Orkney.

0.8m x 1.6m

The design was inspired by the legend of the bright aura of light said to glow around the church, which is the original burial place of St. Magnus. The votive candle was chosen to represent the theme of light because it is a universally recognised symbol of prayer. The shape of the candle flame is repeated throughout the design, its light encircling the colourful centre which makes references to the role of the church in the community and many familiar local landmarks.
