Christ's head and three dragons roof boss.
Christ's head and three dragons roof boss. Hereford Cathedral, Lady Chapel. c.1235. The head on this quite complicated piece of carving is thought to be representational of Christ. The Green Dragons are quite naively portrayed - the tails of two evolve into sprigs of foliage at their tips whilst the central one has two branches of foliage sprouting from his mouth. It is not unusual for animals and foliage to run into each other in carvings of this period. Approx height: 3 3/4 inches (9 1/2 cm), Weight: 500 grams
