Many thanks for all the clicks, comments and interest in the 'mighty and barbaric' baptismal font at North Grimston, North Yorkshire. I'm glad I'm not the only one that likes these ancient and rustic carvings - and yes, Jenn - they are joy to feel and connect with. I've popped part of the crucifixion panel from that font into my gallery for interest.

From the same artistic school and general area, is this font at the 12th century parish church of St Mary, Kirkburn, East Yorkshire.

The limestone font has decoration on two levels. On the upper a band of intersecting arches around the rim and figures including Christ in Glory held by two angels, St Peter receiving the keys from Christ and a baptism. On the lower level motifs include a cat pouncing on a mouse, and the Angnus Dei next to a man with a club leading a bull.

Best wishes,
Philip

All the carving is very crude the beauty is undoubtable.

Like faces from the past, peering through a window in time at us. Quite an eerie feeling.

Great comments from Nathan and Moira, it gives you such a sense of History when you see artifacts such as these and to think they have survived so much war and destruction over the years for us still be able to see them. Lovely Philip.

I like the childish simplicity of the figures a lot. Another well taken shot.

An interesting commentary and as always great detail in the stonework with plenty to look at.

Very interesting shot. Also makes you look at the Lascaux cave paintings with new eyes.
