Carving #2 – Man With Tooth Ache
These reproduction carvings belong to a set of four carvings with a medical theme that were commissioned to copy some very large original medieval carvings from within Lincoln Cathedral. Taking on this subject and context meant we had to employ specialist help. This came from the acclaimed artist, designer maker Nick Hunter who took on the project to replicate these carvings in a smaller version but keeping the artistry and values of the originals. This carving shows a bearded man pulling on his beard with one hand and with the other pointing to his teeth. One can see from the expression on his face this man is in pain and needs the attention of a dentist. The reproduction is highly detailed and is a true piece of sculpture. This cast replica captures all the fine detail from the original oak carving., the carving is designed to be wall mounted and comes with a wall fixing and product label.
