Intertwined beasts, 13th centuryYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
This ornate 13th-century corbel (used for architectural support) is carved in the form of intertwined beasts. One animal is biting playfully at the wing of another creature, while the serpent-like beast in the centre licks the head of a third animal. The detail of the sculpture would have been accentuated with coloured paint, which still survives in places.
