This post features relief carvings in a variety of mediums. The challenge for the artist is to create a sense of depth and dimension within a shallow ground. The play of light and shadows used to create the illusion of depth make relief carvings an interesting subject for the photographer as well.

Concord NH’s South Congregational Church was first organized in 1835. After a fire destroyed the original church in 1859, it was rebuilt on it’s present site on Pleasant St. in 1860. My great grandmother was married here in 1914.

St. Paul’s School in Concord, NH, has two chapels: The Chapel of St. Paul (The Old Chapel) was built in 1858, and the Chapel of St. Peter and St. Paul (The New Chapel) was completed in 1888. Both chapels feature splendid stained glass windows. Below is a selection of photographs I took recently of the windows of the two chapels.
