Allegories of Methodist Teaching
These two reliefs of compact design, fitting into the architectural scheme, the large figure on the left holds a lyre and that on the right, a book. Each is accompanied by two attentive, naked and cherubic children.
The terracotta for this building, designed by the architects E & J Harper, was supplied by Gibbs and Canning, it is also possible that the modelling was the work of their chief modeller, John Evans.
These two reliefs of terracotta groups show allegories of teaching, an important function of the Methodist Church and its Schools.
