"The Healing of the Nations" Globe at Blackburn Cathedral
"The Healing of the Nations" Globe at Blackburn Cathedral
Situated at the East end of Blackburn Cathedral, this fibre-optic globe 11m x 7m by artist Mark Jalland, was made for the Millennium celebrations that inaugurated the twenty-first century of Christian discipleship. Entitled "The Healing of the Nations", it takes the form of a steel and copper "globe" with a river running through it, on either side of which stand the tree of life, with its leaves for the healing of the nations. This is an explicit reference to the vision of the "new Jerusalem" in the last book of the Bible (Revelation chapter 22). River, tree and leaves are formed of thousands of interwoven fibre optics that create ever-changing patterns of light.
