North Creake, Norfolk - St Mary: Another of North Creake's roof angels, its wings lost. The angel holds a diminutive figure, representing a soul. The carving is charming, characterful, but relatively simple. The hands are slightly disproportionate, the modelling of the hair quite basic. Contrast this with the carving at Methwold in Norfolk, or at St Mary, Bury St Edmund, which is sculpture of a very different order. Nonetheless, North Creake's angels are delightful. They are also the first that I photographed in Norfolk, in the middle of a Summer fete in the church, and I have a particular affection for them.
