This boldly defined and expressive left-profile face looks down towards the south.   It is so clear that it is plainly visible from the road. Photographing at night allowed me to light the carving to show the deliberate chiselling on the eye, also the highly worked mouth, with its unnaturally stylized perimeter and internal dressing marks.   An outstanding work of art, powerfully realised.
