Seraph song by Carl Irving

“This is one of two seraphim which started in the house of prayer in Exeter and Exmouth. I was inspired in worship. The work began to take shape and resulted in the pair of seraphim. The song is to reference the cry of the seraphim, ‘Holy, holy, holy.’ You can make out strings within the work. They represent a harp or lyre, (instruments). One of David’s instructions at the temple was to make instruments highlighting the importance of music and song (praise). The wings are for reverence and cover the feet. The eyes and the remaining wings are for flying and waiting on God, making him the focus of our veneration.

These seraphs are described in Isaiah , chapter 6. ‘In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying.  And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.”           Carl Irving
