A visual spectacle of coloured glass jars has been installed to celebrate the Lindisfarne Gospels.

The art installation of 20,000 glass jars filled with coloured ink took five days for environmental artist Steve Messam and his team to complete at Lindisfarne Priory on Holy Island.

The Gospels on the Grass installation, entitled Carpet, is a 100 square metre visual spectacle in the priory grounds.

It will be in place until Sunday.
