Animals in English Wood Carving

by George C. Druce, F.S.A.

The Third Annual Volume of the Walpole Society, 1913-1914
Oxford, 1914
Pages 57-73

This article is about medieval wood carving, primarily in churches in England, where the subject of the carving is an animal. Druce explores the relationship between the bestiaries and the carved animals. The article includes 32 black & white images, some of them illustrations from manuscripts, but most of carvings on misericords, bench ends, and other church furniture. The digitized images have been enhanced to bring out what detail they contain; their content has not been edited. They can be viewed at up to 200% of normal size. Because of the high quality images, the PDF file is very large, about 13.5 megabytes. A text-only edition, without the images, is also available.
