Artwork is inspired by the star of Bethlehem
Throughout December and January, Ely Cathedral invites visitors to come and experience an eye-catching laser display inspired by the Star of Bethlehem.
This modern work of art was created by artist Jayson Haebich and can be enjoyed from now until January 25.
This is only the second time this unique installation – which symbolises the hope and expectation of Advent and Christmas, the light of Christ shining in the darkness and the star which guides the wise men to the baby Jesus in Bethlehem – has been on public display in the UK, having been installed in Salisbury Cathedral in 2016.
This unique design creates the impression of a magnificent star hovering above the nave of the cathedral.
Visitors will be able to engage with the installation by controlling the shape and colour of the star via an iPad at ground level.
