SN 2875 Pair of Fragments form a Tudor Frieze


Two 16th Century Oak sections, circa 1540, from a carved and pierced Frieze, most probably from a panelled room.  They depict two striking Tudor men’s bearded heads above two women’s busts, attached to two sinuous serpents’ bodies.  No doubt this all had symbolic meaning, but I find the iconography baffling!
