Description
Exeter Cathedral
Replica of a goblin corbel from the medieval carvings found upon the misericords and supporters within the choir stalls of Exeter Cathedral. This replica was produced from a mould taken directly from the original medieval carving. Completed in 1400, Exeter Cathedral boasts the longest uninterrupted medieval stone vaulted ceiling in the world. Prayers in the early medieval church were said standing with uplifted hands, the old or infirm could use a misericordia (literally 'pity of the heart' to create an act of mercy), also known as a misericord. When a set was folded up the undersides had a small shelf, a misericord, allowing the user to lean against it, slightly reducing their discomfort. Like most other medieval woodwork in churches, they were usually skilfully carved and often show detailed scenes, despite being hidden underneath the seats, especially in the choir stalls of the choir around the altar.

The modelling is very good but they were slightly smaller than I expected. My fault for not checking carefully. One was a gift and the recipient was delighted.

Sister absolutely loved this - it also matches the colour of the stone of which her house is built.
