Taken from the very fine set of medieval C.1400 – 1419 Misericords of Carlisle Cathedral, this carving is of a peasant. The carving shows the man with a beard and wearing head dress typical for the period and status of the poor man. Like most of the carvings on the Misericords at Carlisle Cathedral they have survived in remarkably excellent condition. This reproduction taken directly from the original captures the fine detail and workmanship that went into producing this carving 600 years ago. The carving gives a great insight of the every day working peasant of that period and it’s justification of being carved in the Cathedral to be preserved for centuries. Comes with wall fixing and product label.
