Excellent! Anyone can do "art", heh.
Lisl: This naive Church art just fascinates me, Ray. Most people don't even notice it. This was quite small

really unusual - I thought a sort of gutteridge? You own a wonderful, detective eye, Lisl!
Lisl: It is just so worthwhile keeping an eye open in some of our ancient Churches, Philine. This was a small roof boss
