The University Church of St Mary the Virgin, Oxford. The south porch, seen here, was built in 1637 and designed by Nicholas Stone, master mason to Charles I. It is a highly eccentric baroque porch with spiral columns supporting a curly pediment framing a small niche with a statue of the Virgin and Child, underneath a gothic fan vault.
