The ruins of Coventry Cathedral, with the charred cross and Reconciliation Statue, are a reminder of the futility of war, but also of the possibility of reconciliation. The new Cathedral, designed by Basil Spence, is a statement of Resurrection and life. Inspired works by John Piper, Elizabeth Frink, Jacob Epstein and Graham Sutherland are all found here.
