Capital carving, Lanercost church, Cumbria, UK 3D Model
This is a carved stone capital, fairly high up on the North side of the East wall of the nave of the parish church of Lanercost, in Cumbria, UK – part of the former priory.
This was reconstructed from photos (Aug 2017) using Colmap and Meshlab. If you rotate the view, you will quickly find regions that have been filled in with no real input.
This church is featured in Simon Jenkins’s book of 1000 best parish churches. He writes: “one capital on the south side [is] curiously decorated with beautiful stiff-leaf, that is in a later Early Gothic style. How did this happen? Did an itinerant mason arrive one day, offer to run up a ‘modern’ carving to show how it was done and then disappear?” I think the geometry shown is what he refers to (but south side of what? – the north aisle?).
