Description

St Andrew’s Cathedral on George Street in central Sydney was consecrated in 1868, making it the oldest cathedral in Australia. The Anglican cathedral is in the Gothic Revival style and was designed by the English architect Edmund Blacket. This photograph shows a panel of the alabaster reredos found inside the cathedral and is of interest from a medievalism perspective for depicting the soldiers at the feet of Christ as armoured medieval knights. The reredos was made by the sculptor Earp in 1887.
