Taken from the medieval carvings (C. 1450) found upon the Misericords within the choir stalls of Cartmel Priory. This carving is of a Lion portrayed in a style known as a Lion Mask, however this is an interesting but also bizarre depiction of a Lion. Apparently the lion being the king of beasts an animal not to be messed with, this shows a lion with a large smile and curly hair and one that seems to be laughing at the observer. This carving definitely makes an interesting and conversational focal point when on display. 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.
Size 12.5 cm diameter.
