Yet More Speculation [May. 12th, 2018|12:28 pm]
Tony Grist
For yet more speculation on the Rochester figure take a look at this page in the Sheela na gig Project's website where it's compared with carvings of jugglers elsewhere in Rochester cathedral and one of a mermaid holding two fish in a church in France. These guys are the experts and- basically- they don't know any more than I do. They do however confirm my sister's observation that the figure is sticking its tongue out.

Their picture is a little clearer than mine. Bastards!

Interesting that they think the figure to the right of the Sheela na gig / mermaid is a bird eating something like a snake. It looks much more like a dragon biting its own tail, ouroboros style, to me.

(PS - sorry for accidentally pressing enter too early!)

I think you're right.
