An unusual depiction of the Nativity made from Papier-mâché in Gloucester Cathedral commissioned from the Oxford artist, James Cochrane.
The eighteen colourful and quirky figures are made from papier mache were specially made for St Andrew’s Chapel, situated off the South Transept of the cathedral. This chapel has very elaborate 19th century decoration.
As well as Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus, there are two angels, two shepherds, two sheep, a sheepdog, an ox and a donkey. Come January, the three kings making the journey from the east will be accompanied by a Gloucester Old Spot pig.
