Description

View of the western doorway of Lichfield Cathedral with its profuse decoration of sculptured foliage and figures. It is described as follows by the author:

The door-way is divided into two openings, by a clustered column in the middle, to which is attached a figure, said to personify the Virgin Mary. There are also two corresponding statues on each side of the door, standing on beautifully formed brackets, and surmounted by equally beautiful canopies. Stukeley conjectures that these figures were meant for the Evangelists.
