Taken directly from the original medieval carvings found upon the misericords and supporters in the choir stalls of Beverley Minster. The Beverley Archer would have been a reminder of an everyday practice, as men were expected to practice archery for times of military duties and hunting. A great little piece of Medieval English craftsmanship, the fine detail of the original has been captured in this excellent cast resin reproduction which is designed to be hung on display.
The Beverley archer is one of a unique set of carvings available from us as reproduction resin casts, they were seemingly done by the same craftsmen during a short period showing many aspects of everyday life of the ordinary medieval person. They show scenes with both a sense of humour and teachings of moral importance especially from the view of the Catholic Church.
