St Margaret's Church, King's Lynn

st luke tile

These tiles showing the four Evangelists are in front of the altar. As with the Alpha and Omega tiles, these panels are made of five separate tiles.

St Luke is portrayed as a winged bull, St John as an eagle and St Mark as a winged lion. According to this convention, St Matthew is shown as a winged man, but presumably these tiles are under the carpet immediately in front of the altar.
