Pig playing Harp.
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 found on the misericords and supporters in the choir stalls of Beverley Minster. This unique set of carvings seemingly done by the same craftsmen during a short period, they seem to depict aspects and values of everyday life. They show scenes with both a sense of humour and teachings of moral importance especially from the view of the Catholic Church. This wonderful carving shows a pig playing the harp. There are many carvings from the medieval period found throughout English Cathedrals today that show pigs and hogs having fun and participating in human cultural activities. In the middle ages these animals were thought of as being jolly, intelligent and most of all being happy and content with life in times that were very uncertain for the people of the period. Taken directly from the original carving this reproduction captures all the fine detail produced by the master craftsmen that carved the original. Designed to be wall mounted, comes with hanging hook and product label.
Size 13cm diameter.
This is great opportunity to purchase a true piece of England’s Rich Cultural History.
