Exclusive to Winchester, a beautifully-realised copy of one of the cathedral’s medieval roof bosses featuring a traditional “Green Man”.
A roof or ceiling boss is a carving that covers the joins between the ribs of a vaulted ceiling – Winchester Cathedral boats over a thousand bosses in its architecture. The Green Man is a motif that is frequently found in European churches, thought to represent growth and rebirth.
The boss is made from resin with a stone effect finish, and comes boxed. We also stock other bespoke roof boss replicas.
