This superbly manic foliage-spewer is on the capital of a pillar which stands in the chancel to the left of the altar, overlooking the 'people's vestry' and best viewed from there. He is very wild and unrestrained, with finely-moulded curling hair and popping eyes under beetling brows, flaring nostrils and a bearded mouth opened wide around the tendrils of foliage. A very fine example of his type.
