Lower Swell (Gloucestershire)
The chancel arch of this remarkable church has this kneeling or squatting
female exhibitionist: a rare position for such a carving.
A capital supporting the chancel arch has this very
crude carving of Luxuria being assailed by a snake.
Another carving in the church shows a bearded male with jug-handle
ears resembling that of Painswick 50 km
to the W, but not (or no longer) exhibitionist.
