Apse SW corbel.

Image of the feature "IV. Interior Features: 4. Vaulting/Roof Supports: d. Apse: Apse vault" at Dalmeny.

by James King.

The apse is covered with a quadripartite rib vault, whose ribs have a half-roll on the soffit and a hollow on each side face. There are four interior corbels with imposts in the E apse, each supporting one of the vault ribs.  The corbels are carved with a series of heads and masks, but only two imposts have carved decoration (at the NE and SE).
