Saint David by Rachel Gadsden is one of four new works created as part Big Draw at the Houses of Parliament. Each piece is part of a modern interpretation of existing mosaics of the four patron saints of the UK in Parliament’s Central Lobby.
The nationwide Big Draw and Family Arts Festival, ran in October last year. The public were able to make their own artwork based on the saints after taking a tour of Parliament and viewing the mosaics. They worked with Rachel, who made copies of their work to inspire and include in the new montaged work.
This project was sponsored by The Speaker’s Art Fund.
