BIBLE STORIES IN STONE Posted on 03/05/2016 by Trici V Leave a comment These figures are about 3/4 life-size, protrude about 4 inches from the stones from which they are carved, and decorate the entire church. I suspect they were carved in situ. The mounted figures at left are archangels. Top centre are a lion and a bear. All of these are actual Biblical figures, but the identities of the kneeling man and the trio at right are anyone’s guess.
