Misericords from St. Katherine's Chapel, London

These carvings were done around 1360 to 1380 for the Royal Foundation of St. Katherine, a church and hospital near the Tower of London. That church was demolished in the nineteenth century and the carvings have moved twice since then; now they are back in the east end at St Katharine’s Chapel in Limehouse.

Edward III and Queen Philippa

Various monsters

Pelican and chicks
