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, the twelfth from the east on the south side, depicts the parents of Samuel presenting their son in the temple to be blessed. The woman holds a jug, and the figures stand before an altar. This is supported on either side by a circular design of leaves.
