Boss
English Oak Roof Boss circa 1450. This is an extremely rare example given its subject depicting a Camel which is seldom found. The iconography of the Camel in Medieval times linked it to Asia as one of the four parts of the World, and was consequently related to events like the Flight from Egypt and the adoration of the Magi. There are later “fill its” in the cut outs and for hanging.
