Norwich Roof Boss #2 [Sep. 8th, 2019|09:02 am]

This one's fairly straightforward. It's an Annunciation. Mary sits at her reading desk while the Archangel Gabriel tiptoes up behind. The ill-defined golden thing in the background between them is almost certainly the Holy Ghost.

Gabriel has lost his head and Mary never seems to have been in possession of a right arm.

The suggestion of an arm is there as there is a point of attachment and a sleeve/ arm drapery. And yes, one can see the wings of the dove as well. Sort of.


Thank you for this this. Next time we go to Norwich, I intend to go back to the cloister for a 4th? 5th? time.

Norwich is my favourite cathedral; its interior is a perfect meld of Romanesque and gothic.
