Solomon and the Queen of Sheba .
Designed by William Butterfield. Tile painting, interior of the Church
of St. Augustine Queen's Gate, Queensgate Mews, Kensington,
Greater London SW7 5JE. Since Solomon is one of the ancestors and
therefore types of Christ this panel, interpreted typologically, might possibly represent
Christ and his church, the Queen of Sheba representing the Church of Christ. Such
an interpretation, however, seems more in keeping
or Low Church practice
rather than the High Church Butterfield.
