This model kit was created by Cornwall Faith Forum member and artist Tom Henderson Smith. The original full scale dome used approximately quarter life-size figures and was a project from his student days in Italy more than forty years ago. Its eighteen triangular mural panels were inspired by historic fresco paintings in Tuscany that he had seen while studying there. They explore the common ground of human kindness that underlies most faith traditions.
In interweaving elements from the tales of St Martin and the beggar, the good Samaritan and the prodigal son they aim to show how everything in life is inter-related. Making up the model can be an intriguing experience of discovering these themes for yourself.
All the proceeds from sales of the kit will go towards funding Dor Kemmyn!
