A lesson in keeping body and soul together is in store for visitors to Manuela Zervudachi's sculpture exhibition, "Body Symbols", which opens on Thursday. The artist's work focuses on the miraculous nature of the human form and the ways in which it functions, looking at the body as "the receptor of pain and pleasure". The Beginning is Inscribed, (right), patinated terracotta, is among the pieces on show which take the Bible as an inspirational starting point. Jacob's Ladder and Temptation also await you. Not for those of a nervous disposition.

`Body Symbols', Long & Ryle, 4 John Islip Street, SW1 (0171-834 1434) 20 Nov to 19 Dec
