Miser & Devil.
Taken from the medieval carvings found on the misericords and supporters in the choir stalls of Beverley Minster. This unique set of carvings seemingly done by the same craftsmen during a short period, they seem to depict aspects and values of every day life. They show scenes with both a sense of humour and teachings of moral importance especially from the view of the Catholic Church. This carving shows a man with a chest full of money counting his gains and wealth. Again one can see that the carving includes a depiction of the devil sitting and laughing in the background. Another moral teaching about personal greed and the unjustified distribution of money and wealth in the medieval period. Taken directly from the original carving this reproduction captures all the fine detail produced by the master craftsmen that carved the original. Designed to be wall mounted, comes with hanging hook and product label.
Size 13cm diameter.
