EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures a remarkable moment frozen in time. The intricate detail of a carved wooden misericord comes to life as we witness an unexpected scene unfold within the Minster Church Of St John, located in the picturesque Minster Yard of Beverley, East Riding Of Yorkshire. In this unique artwork, crafted during medieval times, Major G E Pearson's lens reveals a fox standing tall upon its hind legs, seemingly preaching to an attentive flock of geese. The craftsmanship showcased in this timber sculpture is truly awe-inspiring. Every feather on the geese appears meticulously carved with precision and care. The fox exudes an air of authority and charisma as it addresses its avian audience with fervor. One can almost imagine the animated gestures and impassioned words that might be flowing from its mouth. Photographed in April 1959 by Major G E Pearson, this print serves as a testament to both his skill behind the camera lens and his appreciation for historical art forms. It offers us a glimpse into our rich cultural heritage while reminding us of the enduring power of storytelling through visual mediums. As we gaze upon this extraordinary image, let us marvel at how even centuries-old sculptures can continue to captivate our imagination and spark curiosity about the world around us.
