Taken from the medieval carvings C. 1450 found upon the Misericords within the choir stalls of Cartmel Priory.

This reproduction is taken directly from the original capturing all the fine detail applied by the craftsmen that carved this piece over 500 years ago. Comes with a wall fixing and product label.
