This fanciful design is based on the sculpted undersides of mainly 14th-century choir stalls known as misericords. From the Latin word Miserere or pity, these hinged seats were designed to provide momentary comfort for aging monks during the long services which were the norm in medieval churches. The themes of these intricate carvings were frequently secular, and many were bawdy. Cathedral Stone. English, 14th century. 2.06 x 3.25 x 3 inches
