This is one of our unique and exclusive hand crafted medieval reproduction carvings. This is a cast replica produced from a mould taken directly from the original carving found within Cartmel Priory, England. We are the only company in the UK to take moulds from original medieval carvings from within the Cathedrals of England and to then reproduce them for sale. These reproductions are cast from a resin composite and then stained to give the product all the fine detail, feel and authenticity of the original carving.
Taken from the medieval carvings (C. 1450) found upon the Misericords within the choir stalls of Cartmel Priory. This is a beautiful carving of one of England’s common small wild animals, the Hedgehog. The craftsmen that carved this piece of medieval art have portrayed the animal with a sense of happiness and content, showing that the animal was much liked then as it is today. 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.
