Lincoln College Chapel Oxford. 

Lincoln college chapel carved figures. 

Under Swan Farm Studios I was given the job of replacing damaged areas to the beautifully carved cedar figures.

The Eight figures which represent Moses, Aaron, the four evangelists, St. Peter and St. Paul and are carved in cedar wood.

Three of the figures (Moses, St. Paul and John the Evangelist) had missing hands that I first, modelled in wax to get the correct proportions, then carved replacements on-site. The hands were then attached using period correct glues and stained to colour match.

Bellow is a gallery of photos showing the process.
