re-set carving above S door (interior)

Image of the feature "Miscellaneous: Reset stone over nave entrance" at Fangfoss.

The vesica looks modern, it is a seperate object to the sculpture at the centre, which looks much more authentic. 

The figures are set on a square block with parallel sides, and there is a roll moulding at the back of them. The object is somewhat of the size of a corbel, but would not work as one. The carving is fairly crude, but one might imagine the carver of the beakheads and corbels could have done it. Large heads and smaller bodies, two seated and perhaps the central figure standing; they hold up the arms of the central figure.
