Description

All of the 84 choir stalls in Ely Cathedral have misericords, nineteen of which are modern, with the rest dating from the early 14th century. This misericord, the eighth misericord from the west, in the upper row on the north side, depicts a seated woman looking through a fork in a tree. Her raised arms support the bracket. The misericord is supported on either side by stags grazing amongst foliage.
