Illiam Dhone also known as William Christian the Manx Martyr

This sculpture of Manx Martyr Illiam Dhone (also known as William Christian) is displayed in Malew Parish Church and the plaque underneath the sculpture simply states “Here lies Illiam Dhone, William Christian of Ronaldsway, shot to death at Hango Hill on 2nd January 1663” – January 2nd 2013 marks the 350th anniversary of his execution.

The image was captured on my Nikon S8200 Camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS6.
