St Thomas A Becket, Exeter Cathedral Roof Boss 10cm High
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. Hand crafted in the UK.
