Cast of the figure of a bishop

Plaster cast

Museum number: MP100

Curatorial note

This is a cast of a small-scale medieval finial, perhaps a bench or pew end. The figure seems to be grasping a crook but does not appear to be wearing a mitre although his head is covered by a hood. The 1837 AB inventory of Soane's collection described this as 'Bas relief. Half-length of a Bishop, plaster'.
