scissor arches of Wells Cathedral. During the 14th century the central supports of the crossing (the junction of a Cathedral's four arms) were found to be sinking. In 1338 Bishop Ralph of Salisbury decided to build internal scissor arches to support the weight.
I’m falling fast. I look down. I gasp as I recognize Dali’s ‘Christ of St John of the Cross’ from rainy Sunday mornings in Kelvingrove Art Galleries. I’m looking down at dark hair, hands nailed to the cross, body slumped forward almost wrenching arms from their sockets as he rises above the world. He looks up at me. It’s not Christ’s eyes that bore into mine, it’s Connor’s.
