Artist's Description

This is the statue of the Roman Emperor Constantine outside the west door of the the Church of St Peter, better known as York Minster.

The sunrise was just catching his arm and the tower under repair on the Minster and the composition mirrors the fact that in God creating man, so Constantine created Christianity as the state/politically sanctioned religion, thus starting years of debate, slaughter and torture along side learning and art.
