Description

The misericords in Worcester Cathedral date from 1379, with several modern additions. The misericords represent biblical scenes, nine Labours of the Months, and scenes of everyday life. This misericord depicts the the month of June: three men use scythes to cut grass or crops. This is supported on the left by an ape riding a dog, and on the right by a dog wearing clerical robes standing at an altar on which the head of a sheep is laid.
