    This stone 'Boss' was discovered recently in my daughter's garden. The house was formerly a vicarage.
    I think it's sandstone, weighing about 30-35 Lbs.
    He seems to be sneering, luckily from this angle his broken nose is not too evident. :wink:

    Incidentally for you Canadian types, the light is from something we call the sun. We had just eaten dinner outdoors, so warm and comfortable. :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:


    PenpondsBoss.

    I don't think it's anybody in particular. A friend has just told me it's probably what is known as a Corbel Stone, a linking/locking piece in an arch or rafter supporting block. It is also likely to have been indoors as the stone has not weathered too badly.
    Basically it's a tonsured monk.:wink:

    There are no prizes. :eek:
