Carving of Knight at Jerpoint Abbey, Ireland
One of my favorite carvings at Jerpoint Abbey in County Kilkenny. The cloister is unique for its carvings as Cistercian Abbeys are known for being stark and pious. So this carving of a knight, with a small insertion of a monkey by his side, is quite amusing.
