Beakhead.

Image of the feature "VI. Loose Sculpture: Beakhead voussoir" at Arundel Castle, Arundel.

by Kathryn Morrison.

The head has a beak, which grasps a plain roll, bulging eyes with drilled pupils, a small nose with drilled nostrils, and pointed ears. An inverted five-lobed leaf fills the space between its brows and ears. Above that is a band of hollow triangles filled alternately with pellets and pyramids. This beakhead has gone missing since it was photographed for the Conway Library (A79/6033).
