Public Art at St Patrick’s Cathedral

St Patrick’s Cathedral in Melbourne is the tallest and largest church in Australia. In 1858 William Wardell was commissioned to design the cathedral.  It took nearly 80 years to complete. The Cathedral Church and Minor Basilica of Saint Patrick was officially completed in 1939. On the cathedral, grounds are numerous statues of prominent Catholic figures.
