Nicholas Hawksmoor was a genius of English baroque architecture.  The building behind the figure is the church of St George's in the East - a building that fired the imagination of McCarthy during his Stepney childhood.  The muscularity of the figure is contrasted with the strength and boldness of the architecture.
