Another Cobham Tomb [Oct. 10th, 2015|02:15 pm]
Tony Grist
The Cobhams were mighty tomb builders. The tomb of Reginald the third baron (featured yesterday) is high art. That of his grandfather- the first baron- who was one of Edward III's commanders and fought with distinction at Crecy and Poitiers - is cruder, but still very fine. He powns two Saracens- one (bodiless) on his helmet and the second reclining at his feet, looking cheesed-off  but with his body still attached to his head.

I agree that the other tomb is high art but I almost like this one better. I love this sort of brightly coloured imagery and the Saracen's look (the one at his feet) is priceless.

It's very likeable.

I found an article in the local paper which goes on about the first baron being a great but forgotten national hero- but then illustrates it with a picture of the vicar standing by the wrong tomb.

Oh my! I wonder if many people recognized the error...

Probably not, but I'm surprised at the vicar!

Wonderful! And yes, that is one cheesed-off looking Saracen. You can tell he's been there a long time...
