Hermit wrestling a Wyvern.
Taken from the Medieval C.1380 carvings found upon the misericords and supports from within the choir stalls of Chester Cathedral. This carving from the 14th Century depicts a strange looking man fighting with the mythical beast known as a Wyvern. The Wyvern was known as a dragon with a difference, unlike most Dragons that were portrayed as fire breathing beasts but with a tame and placid nature the Wyvern was Evil. The wyvern was the work of the devil a creature from hell that had no morals and would kill anyone in its way, a truly nasty character. The meaning and interpretation of this carving seems to be the small ordinary man taking on the almighty beast of evil and like most moral teachings the victor is the small man, thus being good over coming evil. This reproduction has been taken from the original carving that captures all the fine detail that is found in the original. Designed to be wall mounted this artefact makes a magnificent and eye drawing focal point in the home.
Comes with a hanging hook and product label.
Size (H) 17cm x (W) 17cm.
