St Paul’s Anglican Church, Beaconsfield, Western Australia - #001 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

“St Paul's began in 1892 with the building of the Mission Hall [known as the St John's Mission Hall - see the Western Mail article below]. Weddings have been performed from 1897 until the present day and the Marriage Register is kept with the Parish Records. The foundation stone of the present church was laid on 23 August 1905. The church choir was established not long after the First World War and has continued to the present day. In the mid 1970s St Paul's combined with St John's Fremantle. St Paul's was re-established as a parish in its own right 30 June 1997.” – Fremantle Stuff

The Heritage Council of Western Australia describes St Paul’s Anglican Church “a good example of a suburban Federation Gothic style church, retaining its original form and set in a pleasing collection of late nineteenth to early twentieth century religious buildings, which together form a prominent landmark within a largely residential streetscape.

One of my all time favourites from religious - unknown - sculptures.
Kind of a special look, I think.

I wonder if the original artisan made those eyes, or if they just carved them blank like other statues, and those were painted in some time later through the years (centuries)?
