Product Description

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 have exclusive permission to take moulds from original medieval carvings from within the Cathedrals & Abbeys of Britain 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 without doubt the finest, largest and most interesting of the carvings we have taken from Carmel Priory. This is virtually a full Misericord carving showing what can only be described as a mythical creature made from a Lion and a Bat. The head is a Lion similar to Lion Mask #3 but the body has Bats wings and claws. This is a very interesting piece and one that attracts a huge amount of attention, a stunning focal point when displayed upon a wall.

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.
