C'est une décoration surprenante.
Chris: Agreed Martine, I do not understand its origin

The angel looks like a bit of a comedian, Chris...like he is in on the joke.
Chris: I like that Ray, a good observation
Goodness - a bit shocking!
Chris: The bird obviously represents something Elizabeth, but I don't really know what that might be..

I bet it's meant to be a Dove, masquerading as a Pigeon, Chris
Chris: I'm sure you are right Lisl
Even so, please don't stand under it! smile Beautifully shown, Chris, especially with the look on that guy's face.
Chris: He facial expression is wonderful Ginnie

The angel could say: Suffer children come unto me ...belong to the kingdom of God.(Matth. 19:14)-and the pigeon might be the dove of the Holy Spirit? An impressive detail! Where we are?
Chris: Bristol Cathedral, I think..
That is just weird. The Angel looks like something out of Alice in wonderland and the pigeon looks like some sort of demented duck
Chris: And such is the state of the country post Brexit..

It looks as if the word ‘little’ has dropped off Tiff.
Chris: Hmmm...seems it has occurred to them that big children need love and protection too Chad
It is a rather strange thing to see in a cathedral.
Chris: I suppose there are all sorts of things if you care to look for them
The fellow is looking down on to his broken nose - or is that pigeon poop?
Chris: Yes it does look misshapen doesn't it..

The character by the guided pigeon (dove surely?) looks like one of the characters from Punch and Judy. yes, I think children should suffer...
Chris: Well whoever he is he looks as miserable as yourself at a noisy disco night..
guilded pigeon looks like a DUCK

like Ray said

Angle looks more like a circus clown
Chris: It all depends on the angle Alan
i think that it would be a Dove representing the Holly Spirit Chris....petersmile
Chris: Probably it is that Peter
What a joyful expression the pigeon has! A funny contrast with the angelic character smile
Chris: Thank you Martin, I thought so too..
