Cathedral Medieval Sculpture Choir Screen Religious Figures


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the intricate beauty of York Minster's choir screen, a true masterpiece of medieval architecture. The image zooms in on three exquisitely carved figures located at the north end of the screen, offering viewers a detailed glimpse into their craftsmanship. Erected around 1460, the choir screen stands as a testament to the skill and artistry of its creators. Its porch and doorway feature an elegant ogee head design, drawing visitors into its enchanting presence. Adorned with canopied niches housing delicate statuettes, this magnificent structure pays homage to England's kings from William I to Henry VI. Above these regal figures lies a row of canopied niches embellished with stucco angels, adding an ethereal touch to this already awe-inspiring sight. Each element harmoniously combines sculpture and religious symbolism, creating a visual feast for all who behold it. The photographer George Bernard Wood has masterfully captured every intricate detail in this print from Historic England. Through his lens, we are transported back in time to experience the grandeur and reverence that permeates York Minster's choir screen. Whether you are fascinated by cathedral architecture or simply appreciate fine artistry, this print is sure to captivate your imagination and serve as a stunning addition to any collection.
