the 1977 intrigues me

the face is so unusual for me
Lisl: The Church had new guttering in 1977, and in keeping with some earlier ages, they stamped the date on the lead

Hmmm..."cute" seems appropriate.
Lisl: Yeas, OK, Ray
What a nice find!
Lisl: Yes, I immediately thought of Chad
Que représente le numéro ?
Lisl: That is the date that the new guttering was installed round the Church, Martine
Over time, modernism has taken over some places at the expense of the beautiful works of the past. It's too bad also I only look at the statue and try to ignore the gutter
Lisl: I am pleased you like the little face, Marie
Oups! error of url
Lisl: It was received OK, Marie

Thank you Lisl, what a wonderful example. I have not seen anything as odd as this before.
Lisl: Just for you, Chad! I am pleased you like it

Delightful Lisl
Lisl: Thank you, Chris - this is St. Arilda's Church
Belle manière de faire de l'original avec une gouttière et ce visage
Lisl: Yes, and maybe a little incongruous, Claudine

A fine piece of leadwork. I like the mix of old and the "modern". (The 1970s still seem recent to me!).
Lisl: Yes, frightening, isn't it, Alan?

1977? I thought of Victorian Age - a wonderful observation for Chad!
Lisl: Yes, the Victorians often put their dates on church leadwork, too, Philine
A jubilee spout
Lisl: Yes, so it is!
The work done in 1977 is very well done. The maker knew how to weld beautifully.
Lisl: Yes - it certainly didn't disfigure

It pays to look up.
Lisl: Always! And down!
That is a very made gutter piece, I'm presuming the water flows out from the gargoyle.
Lisl: It does appear to, Brian

Looks so ancient and cute! What a lovely find..
He seems to rest his chin on this modern thingummy...a water tank ? A small one ?
Devi smile))
Lisl: Something to gather the water in before it goes down the drainpipe. There must be a word for it, but I don't know what it is
I like the weathered textures
Lisl: Yes - that little face is quite old
Ah... bien trouvé !
J'aimerai en savoir un peu plus à  propos de cet objet très original.
Lisl: The little face is ancient and one of several at that level round a rural Church in England. The new guttering was put in in 1977 (the year of our Queen's Silver Jubilee - when she had been on the throne for 25 years). Thank you, jeanmadis
