The north face of the Chantry Chapel of Prior Leschman
The north face of the Chantry Chapel of Prior Leschman
The whole panel is supported by at one end a lion with a fine tail and at the other by a grotesque human figure on elbows and knees. Between these are seven figures, from left to right: 1 a bagpiper; 2 a fox preaching to geese (a common satire on a monk preaching); 3 a harpist; 4 'Nobody', a figure with four heads; 5 a sheep stealer; 6 a jester with toy; and 7 Prudence holding a mirror with a snake around her. Above these are eight niches between pillars surmounted by carved heads. The niches contain representations of: 1 St George and the dragon; 2 an interlace pattern; 3 The Madonna with Christ crucified; 4 a decorative panel with interlace; 5 an ape eating (symbolising gluttony); 6 a lily in a vase (purity); 7 St Peter pointing at a reliquary; and 8 St Paul with a book (a gospel?) in his hand. {Source: Hexham Abbey Guide p20.}
