Free-standing medieval effigy in the south transept at Pershore Abbey, Pershore in Worcestershire.
The now faceless effigy, on a tomb chest incorporating quatrefoils, is thought to be an abbot, possibly William de Harvington or Abbot Hert.
Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Woodland Beauty'.
An interesting and well captured photograph in rather difficult lighting conditions Phillip.
Oh I like this one Philip it is full of mystery and intrigue, I like the shadow falling across the tomb and we can only guess what this unkown Abbot would have looked like. It also feels serene and peaceful when I look at it.
A different pov, very interesting, lovely light and shadow
Even stone effigies die... Moving, sad image.
Good use of light and shade and shadow in this.
The shadows add depth and mystery, Philip, and I like your angle of capture.
An interesting capture

I certainly agree there Philip, assume that is wear due to veneration over many century's by pilgrims well done, regards Leon.
This is an excellent capture Philip !! You discover the weirdest and most interesting artifacts and scenes !!
Recumbent effigies in churches and abbeys are usually meant to celebrate a person's life. This one is quite special because it displays, as Moira underlines, death and decay. Obviously, the stone-head has suffered the ravages of time, but I think there is more in this complex shot. It is as if outside light filtering through the stained-glass had for a moment entered the underworld of darkness and mystery. Thus it is finally, the strange coloration on the spotted figure; the way it contrasts with the dark background and the invading dark band that does it. It is only now that I noticed the quatrefoils, the imprint of another time. Well done,
Good pov Philip, vwry well capture.
Well taken shot.
Well spotted, spooky....
