The work "Faith" by John Cobbett

John Cobbett is a sculptor born in Edinburgh in 1929. He was educated at Charterhouse School, then Bournemouth Municipal College, before moving to the Royal Academy Schools.[1]

He created three works for Sir Edward Maufe's Guildford Cathedral; the "Madonna and Child" and "St Francis" statues inside the cathedral, and the work "Faith". The latter was a gift to the Cathedral from the Women's Royal Army Corps.[2][3]
