Christ in Majesty over S entrance

Image of the feature "Miscellaneous: 2. Christ in Majesty relief" at Damerham.

by Ron Baxter.

Set in the gable of the S porch is a trapezoidal block, wider at the top, carved in relief with the figure of Christ in Majesty seated on a rainbow and enclosed by a mandorla.  He is badly eroded, but the normal attributes are clearly seen: the R hand raised, a book supported by the L hand on the L knee, and a cross halo.  No measurements could be taken.
