Jacobean Funeral Statuary

I’ve been out and about today looking at some stunning examples of Jacobean funeral statuary. I thought it might be nice to share some photos. The statuary relates mainly to the Gage and Parker families of East Sussex. The above photo is of the wonderful timbered roof inside Firle church. As I’ve said in previous posts, I’m no photographer. These were just snapped with my iPhone, but they do give something of a sense of the sumptuous detail.

(Note the three little children bundled in shrouds)
