St Mary, Adderbury 2

Back to Adderbury.

The corbel tables at the west end of the church are a compendium of the weird and wonderful.

Comical bird, bagpiper, winged lion, archer

Peasant, double-headed man/youth and age, mermaid

Zither player, long haired monster

Viol player, monster (human-headed flea?)

As I've noted before, Hieronymus Bosch wasn't the only late medieval artist with a vivid imagination.
