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 third misericord from the west, in the upper row on the south side, depicts Noah looking out of his ark, which is three-tiered. On the left this is supported by a raven and the carcass of an ox, and on the right by a dove carrying an olive branch flying towards Noah.
