The small charming carving in the form of a maned lion's face and paws
the eyeballs having pierced and upward gazing pupils;
wonderful whimsical expression!
A corbel is akin to a bracket.
Corbels have been used since Roman times as both architectural support
and as decoration – particularly in church construction.
Carved timber corbels were widely used in England and the Continent
from the Medieval, the Gothic and through late Baroque periods.
