Slightly damaged, this is still a very pleasing peeper, the second to be found on this impressive Victorian-Gothick monument to the Rev. Thomas Henry Hume (died 1834), designed by Hopper. Look for the monument against the west wall of the cathedral's south transept.
The melancholy face with a rather pained expression (as befits a mourner) is surrounded by what is clearly ivy leaves and berries. You will find it at the bottom of the monument, to the right of the main tablet. Another very pleasing example of its type.
