GeneralContext Carved panel of Christ in Majesty.
Location aisle of the Church in Barnack.
GeneralDescription This panel has a carving of Christ in Majesty, which is dated to the eleventh century.
GeneralDescription Christ is a bearded figure, seated on a throne. His clothing is draped over him and has unusual inverted folds (these may have been copied from a manuscript). His feet and hands are not covered. There is an object on his left knee, which may be a book (?), and his right hand is raised, possibly, in blessing.
