2004, Marzia Colonna was commissioned to make the statue of St
Aldhelm for Sherborne Abbey to commemorate the 1300th anniversary
of its foundation. Designed to stand above the main entrance to
the Abbey, the bronze figure is spiritual and serene, arms held
out as if to welcome the congregation. Due to popular demand a
subsequent cast was made and can be seen inside the Abbey.
