An English Oak Carved and Pierced Tracery Head, circa 1520. The carving depicts male and
female heads opposite each other set in reduced roundels, with head of a King at the centre.
The facial expressions are very striking and it is possibly meant to be a caricature of “The
Feast of Fools”. The carving is of a very high quality and the overall imagery comes over
with great impact. The piece would appear to have been reused, there is a later “fill it” to the
lower centre of the panel, and the surrounding framing is a later seventeenth century addition.
Dimensions: Height 24.5 centimetres, Width 100.5 centimetres, Depth with later framing
