If you are not currently a member, we invite you to join or renew your membership online.
This detailed carving of a bird surrounded by foliage and pecking at a bunch of grapes is taken from a misericord within the choir stalls of Lincoln Cathedral.This ornate reproduction is hand-crafted to the highest standards by Oakapple Designs Ltd, a company specialized in reproducing medieval carvings using molds taken directly from original carvings found within the cathedrals and abbeys of the United Kingdom. Each piece is cast in resin and then stained to create a virtually indistinguishable copy. The original carving was made in wood, but it is presented here with a 'stone' finish.
