St. Paul’s is a church which sits at the top of Ludgate Hill and is one of the most famous and recognized sights of the city.

The church enjoys an ideal location for religious and social events throughout England and all the ceremonies are given extra prominence if they are been held in the said Cathedral. It was recently that a huge exhibition was been seen at St. Paul’s Cathedral on August 30th which was interesting enough to be a subject of discussion till now.

The ‘Caravan’ Exhibition 2013

As the name reveals, the recent exhibition at St. Paul’s Cathedral had a theme of Caravan which merely comprised of colorful, painted donkeys. Been sculpted by an Egyptian artist Reda Abdel Rahman, the 25 life-size painted donkeys were exhibited by Muslim and Christian Egyptian artists who chose fiber-glass as their basic raw material. The exhibition attracted a decent art-loving audience where the viewers were really fascinated by the real sized donkeys with painted pictures over their bodies.

The exhibition in general, was a real success and here are some of the clicks of interesting sculpted donkeys which made people watching them, speechless.
