Imprisoned...for aeons!
Lisl: Never to be released until the stone crumbles to dust
Goodness, that's something
Lisl: There were half a dozen similar sculptures I could have chosen, Elizabeth

Everybody has a load to carry but this bloke really has! Where did you find him Lisl?
Lisl: St. Mary Redcliffe, Chris
That is amazing.
Lisl: And several centuries old - probably 500 years+

He certainly looks to be struggling with his heavy load. It's a fine carving.
Lisl: It certainly is very expressive, Alan
I like this very much Lisl, one can sense to struggle.
Lisl: This can be seen in St. Mary Redcliffe, Chad
What exactly is he doing?
Lisl: He and some other carvings (taken from elsewhere and set on the floor) all seemed to have pillars to support
It is very good isn't it. I am wondering how large this is.
Lisl: No more than three feet by two feet, Mary

Very impressive!
Lisl: I was impressed!
I like very much this sculpture which is very well with Holy Week.
Lisl: It caught my eye as soon as I saw it last week, and yet other times I have walked by without seeing!

A fine carving.
Lisl: It certainly is - I wonder about the date?
It is a most unusual find, I can't recall ever seeing anything like this in a church.
Lisl: This was one of several, Brian - I think I may go back and get Some decent pictures of the others
He's not a happy bunny Lisl
Lisl: He has a heavy load, Bill
stark and powerful...
Lisl: My photo startled me, Larry
