Lion Mask #1
Taken from the medieval carvings found upon the misericords and supports within the choir stalls of Lincoln Cathedral. This carving is of a Lion’s face known as a lion mask. The carving seems to have a more realistic appearance and more true to a lion’s face. This is a most impressive portrait of a lion’s face and one that stands out from the other lion masks carved in the medieval period and found in other English Cathedrals. This reproduction is taken directly from the original carving and captures all the fine detail produced by the master craftsmen that carved this mask many years ago. Comes with wall fixing and product label.
Size 17 cm diameter.
