Sculptures

The wooden sculptures on the High Altar Reredos were executed in England and depict people and angels who have been important for some reason to the people of the British Church.

The two stone heads on the top of the pillars which mark the ending of the first section that was completed are of Bishop Short, the first Dean of Adelaide and possibly the architect and builder of the first section of the Cathedral.

The Rood hanging above the Choir area was made by a Hungarian Australian, Andor Meszaros, and is made of Queensland Maple The Christus Rex hanging below the early South Australian flags and guidons is enamel on copper made by a Czech-Australian Voitre Marek . The Madonna in the Lady Chapel, also enamel on copper, was also made by Marek.
