1955

Standing figure of a crowned knight with sword, banner and shield.


firm/studio: Celtic Studios

Church of St David, Llanarth, Ceredigion
south wall of the nave


The shield and the emblem on the breastplate would hint that this figure is at least inspired by that of St George, but the overall iconography might indicate that 'The Red Cross Knight' or 'The Christian Warrior' would be a more suitable designation.
