Taken from the medieval (C.1340) carvings found upon the misericords and supports within the choir stalls of Lancaster Priory. These carvings are some of the oldest surviving church carving in England and when carved these carvings and the choir stalls are thought to have been the finest examples in the country.

Unfortunately these choir stalls were damaged and defaced by Oliver Cromwell during the English civil war and revolution of the mid 17th Century. These carvings belong to a small collection we have reproduced from Lancaster and all being depictions of faces, it is thought that some are Caricatures of the monks and carvers themselves.

This fine example is of a medieval man, the carving is called Jesus but is most definitely not Jesus. This is simply a portrait of a person and could be a caricature of a person with those characteristics.

Designed to be wall mounted, comes with a hanging fixture.

Size (H) 7cm x (W) 5cm.
