Whilst walking the grounds of St Particks Cathedral in Melbourne, I came across the statue of Saint Catherine of Siena

The Crown of Thorns is a very powerful symbol of great sacrific and surrender.

I asked my dear friend Andrew parmi
to create something dark & moody with this piece.
Andrew’s work is wonderful and his version is so powerful.

I tend to throw myself into many creative crafts and many of which I don’t always complete., but I always come back to my first love …. photography.
