This medieval carving (c.1400) is from the choir screens from which you enter the choir at Carlisle Cathedral. This carving is of a long thin hunting hound laying down and curled up for a much-deserved rest. Like many of the carvings from Carlisle Cathedral it shows every day ordinary people and animals and their importance to the values of the church and community in the medieval society. The fine detail of the original has once again been captured in this excellent reproduction of a great piece of Medieval English craftsmanship. Comes with wall fixing and product label.
Size (H) 11cm x (w) 12cm.
