Does anybody know where John photographed al the statue faces he used in his Cathedral Oceans artwork pieces?

Probably Italy or Rome knowing John, but I'm just curious!

Hi Alex,
This is a really excellent question.
I was always under the impression that John took his photo's in Highgate cemetery London but I could be totally wrong. Highgate cemetery is split into two halves one that is open to the general public (east side) and the other (west side) which you have to pay for a guide to take you round. http://www.highgate-cemetery.org/index.asp
I also read that he used to live near there.

I hope someone knows exactly where John took them because I for sure would like to know.

Regards Peter

Yeah, it would be good to know. Maybe they date back to his time in Italy.

There are a lot of statues like that in the Chateau de Versailles in France - I thought of John when I saw those!

I thik some of the statues can be found in the garden of Bomarzo (Viterbo) Italy.
