Carved bear, Church of St Andrew, Dacre, Cumbria
This medieval carved bear is one of a group of 4. It stands upright about 4 feet high and is probably in its original position at one corner of the medieval churchyard. It is thought to represent the third part of a 4-part story: the bear makes a vigorous attempt to dislodge the animal clinging to its back by reaching over his shoulder with his right paw.
