Angry Bird [Sep. 25th, 2015|10:03 am]
Tony Grist


St Mary the Virgin, Salehurst has a set of these birds in grisaille, all pretty much bashed about. I don't know what this particular specimen is supposed to be. Some sort of goose?  I'm thinking it's 15th century, but I don't really know.

The head's not right for a dove.

I think the artist made it up.

Goose, I think and I reckon you're right on 15th century.

I could wish the iconoclasts had left us more of this sort of thing...

There's a lot more about that one realises in obscurer corners of the country.
