Icons and Tree

Four stunning new icons have recently been installed in Chelmsford Cathedral. The icons depict from left to right, the Virgin Mary, Jesus, St. Peter, and St Cedd and are sited above the semicircular arch in the four blank clerestory windows of the Chancel. Through the arch another piece of artwork the Tree of Life mural is visible. These are just some examples of the many interesting artworks in the cathedral.

The icons have been created by Orthodox icon-writers who wish to remain anonymous as an offering to God.
