Dogs - capturing the Spirit in Stone 1

One of the most interesting discoveries at Iford Manor was two Dog statues. They were seriously large works of art, being much taller than me. The first is posed with its head raised as if looking up at its master. The expression is one of devotion. Lichen, like with so many items I have seen in recent months, is establishing itself and beginning to grow across the animal's face.

  1. These are really nice statues, they remind me of statues of griffins and two sleeping lions where I used to live in England, they were a similar style.... hhhmmmmm
