The Autumnal Monk

This statue, of a monk with his eyes closed in deep contemplation can be found just past the entrance to the Bishop’s Palace in Wells.

I took this shot on an Autumn morning, with the brightly coloured leaves as a backdrop.

I feel there’s something both interesting and yet slightly creepy about this figure, perhaps it’s to do with him being motionless and yet quite life-like.
