St Mark the Winged Lion, St David's Cathedral Roof Boss 10cm High

£24.99
SKU HC99

The Winged Lion of Saint Mark at Saint David's Cathedral, Lady Chapel. The design of this lively carving is both sensitive and imaginative, its execution exquisite; the work of an expert stone mason. Given that there were probably relatively few lions around St David's in the early 14th century to copy, this is a magnificent piece of work, the loose folds of flesh on the lion's hind quarters and his heavy, powerful paws are just perfect - and did a carved lion's face ever look more leonine? This winged lion, the symbol of Saint Mark, is a carved detail above the sedilia on the south side of the Lady Chapel sanctuary and is carved from fine-grained Cambrian sandstone, quarried from cliffs south of the cathedral. Hand crafted in the UK.
