The Tournament. Worcester Cathedral.
This is one of our unique and exclusive designs from our collection of hand crafted reproduction carvings which are taken directly from an original medieval Cathedral carving. We pride ourselves at Oakapple Designs as having permission to take moulds directly from the medieval carvings found upon the misericords and choir stalls from within the Cathedrals and Churches in the UK. Our moulds and production techniques capture and reproduce all the fine detail from the original carvings to produce a very high-quality piece with all the authenticity from the original carving.
Taken from the medieval carvings (C1380.) found upon the Misericords and supporters from within the choir stalls of Worcester Cathedral. One of our largest and most definitely most impressive reproductions in our collection. Known as the Tournament this magnificent highly detailed carving shows two Knights jousting, one can almost see and feel the movement and atmosphere in this portrait. One charging Knight with his lance out straight forward and head down can clearly be seen to be the winner as the other knight is knocked of his horse. One can see the expression of surprise, defeat and pain in the face of the loosing Knight as he is knocked back and falls from his horse.
This carving forms the centrepiece of a medieval misericord and there are carvings to both the left and right of this piece. On the left-hand side as you look at the carving one can see a part of a foot this belongs to the Jester carving, on the right-hand side one can see a horn, this belongs to the carving Man playing Horn.
