Artist's Description

Font at St Mary The Virgin, Salehurst, East Sussex.

13th C. font which is plain except for a circle of salamanders around the base. These animals were associated with the crusades and may have been the origin of the charming story that the font was given to Abbot William of Robertsbridge by King Richard I in gratitude for his part in freeing the king from imprisonment in Bavaria. It is now thought more probable that the font is a copy of one that stood in Battle Abbey.

5 exposure HDR from single RAW file shot on a Canon EOS1000D and processed in PS8.
