Title: Papal Altar
Material: Plaster
Location: Phoenix Park

Based upon the ancient hymn Sancti Venite this inscription panel was modelled upon the uncial manuscripts. It was an unusual layout, the first line being the longest called for the ingenious device of using linear spacers to give the illusion of a module to equal line length. The character of the letters was a conscious format to accommodate the inevitable use of telescopic photo lenses to record the historical event of the Pope saying mass at the altar.
