Taken from the medieval carvings found upon the misericords and supports within the choir stalls of Lincoln Cathedral. This is a most splendid and beautiful carving of a large Frog. What is most strange and apparent of this carving is that it portrays the Frog seemingly committing suicide by thrusting a sword into its own stomach. The meaning and purpose of this carving obviously meant something very prominent when carved but today its meaning is not completely unknown however it is thought to represent one of the seven deadly sins which are commonly found within cathedrals and churchesfrom this period.This reproduction makes a most interesting and talked about focal point, taken directly from the original and captures all the fine detail by the master craftsmen that carved this work of art many years ago.
