The Samson Tympanum, Stretton Sugwas Church
The Samson Tympanum, Stretton Sugwas Church
The greatest of the treasures in the church is the Samson Tympanum, as you walk in at the South door it faces you above the door to the belfry. It is a semi-circular carving of breath taking beauty, depicting Samson seated astride a lion and forcing its jaws open with bare hands. It is a brilliant example of the work of the great mediaeval sculptor known as the Chief Master , working under the patronage of Sir Ralph de Baskerville.
