Taken from the medieval carvings (C1380.) found upon the Misericords and supporters from within the choir stalls of Worcester Cathedral. This wonderful carving is of a Falconer; one can clearly see his protected hand with this amazingly over proportionate glove held high while waiting for the Falcons return. Falconry in the medieval period was a hunting sport predominantly undertaken by the Monarchy and ruling classes. The Falconer in the carving is most likely to be a gamekeeper employed by such persons. The carving has survived through centuries without virtually any damage and remains in pristine condition. This reproduction has been taken from the original carving and captures all the fine detail produced by the master craftsmen that carved this piece over 600 years ago. Designed to hang upon a wall, this reproduction makes a stunning display and interesting focal point, comes with a hanging fixture and a product label.
Size (H) 18cm x (W) 17cm.
