Royal Cambrian Academy

Lower Gallery
17 Jul 21 - 28 Aug 21


Designed and modelled by sculptor Barry Davies RCA, this three quater life size statue maquette depicts Saint David at sixty years old.

Following his extensive research Davies' portrayal of the Patron Saint of Wales is as historically accurate as the scholarly community's current knowledge of Welsh history allows.

Carved in plaster and polished in liming wax,this maquette is exhibited at the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art prior to a forthcoming solo exhibition in the North choir aisle of St Davids Cathedral.
