There's even more than usual for visitors to Gloucester Cathedral to gaze and wonder at with the arrival of 79 contemporary works by 50 different sculptors - the largest a 25ft (7.62m) tall sculpture of the Roman god Vulcan.
This lying figure can be found in the ambulatory behind the high altar. Clochard by Ralph Brown was made in the 1950s and inspired by the down-and-outs living under the bridges in Paris.
Glowing in the candlelight outside St Andrew's Chapel is Marcus Harvey's bronze Nike, a huge winged World War II helmet resting on three rifle barrels.
Damien Hirst's Saint Bartholomew, a larger than life-size depiction of the Christian martyr who was flayed alive, stands a few yards below the main altar, his skin hanging from his outstretched right arm
Being installed at the west end of the nave, against the backdrop of the great west window, is David Mach's Calvary, created from thousands of coat-hangers ...
... a closer view shows the figure has metal spikes all over, creating a kind of halo effect.
One of the most colourful sculptures is John Buck's vivid You and Me, a bright red image of interdependence ...
... and this strange creature has been crafted from motor parts.
The sculptures also spill over into the cathedral grounds and cloisters, with these figures standing in one of its fan-vaulted walkways. Crucible runs from 1 September 1 to 30 October at Gloucester Cathedral and admission is free.
