THIS CARVING MOST LIKELY COMES FROM A NICHE IN A ROOD LOFT. THE LARGE EYES AND HANDS AND LOOPING FOLDS OF DRAPERY ARE CHARACTERISTICALLY ENGLISH. THE TIMBER IS OF A REMARKABLY HEAVY AND DENSE BROWN OAK, WITH A SURFACE PATINA MORE LIKE THAT OF A WELL USED PIECE OF EARLY OAK FURNITURE. THERE ARE A FEW TRACES OF ORIGINAL POLYCHROME. THE NOSE OF THE FIGURE HAS BEEN DAMAGED INTENTIONALLY, PROBABLY DURING THE REFORMATION OR THE ICONOCLASTIC VIOLENCE OF THE 17TH CENTURY. THERE IS A TENON BENEATH THE FEET, WHERE THE FIGURE WOULD HAVE SLOTTED INTO THE BEAM OF THE ROOD LOFT.
