Taken from the Medieval C.1300 carvings found upon the Misericords and supports within the choir stalls of Winchester Cathedral. These carvings are of significant importance as they are virtually the oldest surviving Misericord carvings in England and therefore give a true insight and glance of the cultural values and life of early 14 th Century England. However this portrait of the Pelican is a new addition to the Misericords and choir stalls being re-carved in the Victorian era to replace a badly damaged carving. This is still a beautiful carving depicting a pelican with wonderful detail and accuracy in a more modern style and stance. This reproduction is taken from the original carving and has captured all the fine detail that was applied by the master craftsmen that created this great work of wood sculpture. Designed to be wall mounted this reproduction artefact makes a most interesting and inspiring focal point when on display, comes with a hanging fixture and product label.
