Tympanum reworked into four-centred arch at St Oswalds church, Widford, near Burford, Oxfordshire.
A Tympanum (plural, tympana) is semi-circular decorative wall surface over an entrance, door or window, with an arch above and a lintel below (but not always). Tympana often contain decorative patterns or sculptural elements.
This tympanum appears to have been decorated with a chequerboard pattern – visible on the right of the model. The stone has later been reworked into a four-centred arch.
The first church here dates from the late Saxon or early Norman period, The Tympanum probably also dates from this period.
The model has been uploaded at a high resolution to let the lighting show the detail in the stonework - both of the decorative areas and tooling elsewhere. You can adjust the lighting to help show different details in the stone by: 3-finger drag (on mobile) or ALT + Left Mouse Button and drag mouse.
