“Seraph spear” by Carl Irving
£450 (or £400 if purchased with Seraph Song) plus postage and packing
“The two seraphim pictures started in the house of prayer in Exeter and Exmouth. I was inspired in worship and the work began to take shape,resulting in the pair of seraphs.
The spear is a reference to the piercing love of God that compels us to give worship. This is referenced in Acts when Peter says that once the message of the cross was realised, the people were cut to the heart. The wings of the seraph 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
