Jolies sculptures mais elles ont toutes les deux le nez cassé.
Lisl: Unfortunately, many sculptures in English Churches are like this - sadly most were damaged when we became a Protestant country

The caricature on the left appears to have had some maintenance attempted on it, Lisl.
Lisl: It does look like it - it was difficult to work out what has happened here
It seems nose jobs weren't big back then....
Lisl: No, just hacking them off, Frank
Interesting aren't they! When I imagine them with their noses they're still pretty good!
Lisl: Yes, I guess they were pretty impressive when first carved, Elizabeth

Faces from the past, these might even have been real people for all we know..
Lisl: They could well be, Chris

The carvings look almost contemporary Lisl.
Lisl: They do look surprisingly modern, but they are supposed to be 15th Century

They look rather modern, but they might be medieval. Very expressive faces!
Lisl: They are medieval, Philine - 15th Century according to the guide book
Nice detail Lisl. I would like to visit this church
Lisl: You should, Bill - not far south of Salisbury

You would not want to meet the two people who these were modelled on on a dark night.
Lisl: You are so right there, Alan
Perhaps lepers were used as models. smile
Lisl: Well, they certainly look the worse for wear, Mary
2 beautiful sculptures. Nice capture
Lisl: Thank you, Marie
Sometimes these old sculpted faces make one think people looked very strange back in those days smile
Lisl: And these two do seem rather extreme, I know what you mean, Brian
Possibly images of some of the masons smile
Lisl: That is certainly possible. In Wells Cathedral there is a sculptured head of the master mason
there seems to be a bit of ware on the noses and the one on the left looks beat up and repaired badly Lisl....petersmile
Lisl: Certainly past their best, Peter

Excellent !
Deux images qui absorbent le regard immédiatement.
Lisl: Ils étaient certainement très immédiats
