Lion #2 (Carlisle Cathedral).
Taken from the very fine set of medieval C1400 – 1419 Misericords of Carlisle Cathedral, this carving is of a Lion. Traditionally known as the king of the beasts, and generally thought to be associated with the monarchy especially the kings throughout the medieval period. One can see a very close resemblance to the carving of a Griffin from Carlisle Cathedral, the head being virtually the same along with the posture of the body. The same craftsmen have clearly done this at the same period of construction of the Misericords and choir stalls. This carving of a magnificent beast again captures all the fine detailed work originally done by the person that produced this carving over 600 years ago. Comes with wall fixing and product label.
