Mottisfont and the mosaic angel

A year ago we spent the day at Mottisfont and my camera battery died . We decided to go there again for an Easter egg trail and guess what , frustratingly my camera battery was uncharged so these are my best shots with my phone!

The beautiful angel is by Boris Anrep responsible for mosaics in the National Gallery and Westminster Cathedral. Completed in 1947 , it’s face is that of mottisfont’s owner Maud Russell with whom Boris was in love.
