A commission which entailed the replacement of many of the label stop figureheads to the exterior of the church.

They were all carved entirely by hand in Bath limestone.  Adding to the satisfaction of this commission, several of the figure heads were replaced as portraits selected by the church.

They were all 'free-carved' directly into stone blocks without any pre-modelling using only front and profile angled photographs of the subjects as references for the portraiture.

These carvings may be viewed at street level at:  Armenian Church, Cranleigh Gardens, London, SW7
