Norman Yendell - The Feeding of the five Thousand

Norman Yendell

The Feeding of the Five Thousand

Wood

Location: The Mary Harris Memorial Chapel, Streatham Campus



Norman Yendell's work usually concentrates on religious or mythological subjects. This wood sculpture depicts the traditional Biblical theme of loaves, fishes and baskets.

Norman Yendell, who exhibited his wood sculptures in the University in 1973, declared his intention to donate the entire proceeds of sales to Quaker Relief in Northern Ireland.  In his retirement, he enjoyed the creativity afforded by wood sculpture in the round, and portrayed religious and mythological subjects. 

Here, his depiction of the traditional theme shows loaves, fishes and baskets; it repays inspection from all angles to appreciate the details.
