Placing modern figures in an ancient church

If you ever visited an old cathedral with missing statues or broken off gargoyles, you've probably tried to imagine what was once there. But did you ever imagine putting something there you created yourself?

The artist Sean Henry told the U.K's arts guide, Culture 24, “By placing my figures on existing empty plinths and platforms and in areas where other, older sculptures would once have stood I’m interested in memorialising the everyday - in drawing the viewer’s attention to the significance of our own experience of the here and now."
