St Thomas a Becket Exeter Cathedral

£22.99
SKU HC30

The murder of Saint Thomas a Becket roof boss. Exeter Cathedral, nave. c.1350. This, the westernmost boss in the nave, is widely considered to be the finest boss in Britain. It depicts the murder of Thomas a Becket in Canterbury Cathedral at the hands of King Henry II's knights in 1170. The figures are accurately carved and arranged with a fine sense of overall design. This boss has been painted since World War II, but was in all probability painted when originally carved.
Approx height: 4 1/8 inches (10 1/2 cm), Weight: 500 grams.
