Wall Waif

This tiny figure, of which only the hands arms and head are visible, seems to be pushing himself out of the stone pillar. Above him and supported by his head is a shelf containing a 15th century wooden carving believed to be of St William of York. The candles were lit for evening vespers in this very 'high' Anglican church, and although the nave and choir were  beautifully illuminated with coloured lights for festival week this small scene was what caught my eye. Come back tomorrow to see the statue supported by this wall waif.
