Rather fittingly for the last of my current ecclesiastical set, this is a medieval roof boss from the cloisters at Norwich cathedral. The roof bosses are unique world wide. Over 1000 beautifully carved medieval stone sculptures, depicting scenes and characters from the Bible, incidents from the lives of saints, themes from everyday life and images of the Green Man.

The 1297 - 1430 architecture of the cloister walkways are splendid examples of the stages of the English Gothic style. The East walk is Decorated, built with geometric circular stone patterns, (1297 - 1318), the South and West walks are in the flowing Decorated and Curvilinear styles (1322 - 1430) while the North walk is formed in the Perpendicular style, which is more vertical in its form (1381 - 1430). Today, Norwich Cathedral cloister is the largest monastic cloister in England; it is two stories high and was designed to house a community of approximately 100 monks.

Thanks for all the votes on my last upload.

Best wishes,
Philip

I recognised it in the thumbnail! The Norwich cloisters have some amazing bosses (all those wonderful Green Men...). Love this.

Isn't art something wonderful? This scene looks as if modelled through a wide-angle lens! Lovely.

A superior example of carving. The colours and fine details are exceptionally well captured in this image.

I do not know much about cathedrals, ( not many in the US) ) but this particular sculpture is very appealing to me--- Thanks for the info and this image!
