Artwork Descriptions

Carved misericord
“Green Man”

Fred Blake

Misericords are carved wooden rests on the underside of choir seats in many cathedrals of Europe, dating from 11th to 15th C. They were to give support for monks and vicars in long periods of standing during service. The subjects carved were wide and varied. This Green Man is based on a misericord in Lincoln Cathedral, late 13th C, and carved in English lime.
