Product Description

Taken from the medieval carvings 1490 – 1495 from within the choir stalls of Ripon Cathedral. This magnificent and outstanding reproduction carving is know as The Ripon Beast, however we are not quite sure exactly what this little creature is but it’s a stunning carving of a mythical type of creature. The carving is in excellent condition and the reproduction captures all the fine detail that the master craftsmen put in to this piece of work over 500 years ago. copied directly from the original carvings they include all the original cracks & chips from over centuries of use along with wood worm, wood grain and the makers tool marks. Beautifully colour stained and toned they are virtually indistinguishable from the originals.
