350-year old Lion, made of oak-wood. Part of an ancient pulpit. This detail is situated next to the little stairs that lead to the interior of the pulpit. City of Bolsward, Friesland area, Netherlands (the Northern-part of the Netherlands/Holland). This church is a pseudo-basilica.
The quality of this woodcarving is exceptional, due to all the details. It's also in perfect condition, and that is very special for a woordcarving of 350 years old.
