The Devil and the Bishop, Lincoln Cathedral

A detail of the carving on the south side of Lincoln Cathedral. The Devil and the Bishop
Watercolour on watercolour paper, 8 1/4" x 11 3/4"
The medieval craftsmen who created these carvings had a very wry sense of humour. I found these carvings running along the base of the wall. Interspersed with carvings of flowers and abstract designs were these delightful faces: a grinning devil next a rather worried looking bishop.
This is the final painting for my exhibition which begins next monday!!!
