Boss - "Noah Planting the Vine"

From Oliver Creed website:
"..Roof Bosses in Norwich Cathedral... modelled in clay in the studio from the postcards published by the Friends of Norwich Cathedral supplemented by many visits with binoculars to check on details and resolve problems of perspective created by their 80 ft height from the floor. They are cast in Herculite plaster from silicon moulds I make from my models and are painted and gilded by me after the Victorian repainting which includes possibly more gold leaf (22 3/4 carat) than the original 14th century painting."
"Noah in his drunkeness planting the Vine. Good example of a ‘time piece’. Noah is shown planting the vine with his dibber in a vineyard heavy with grapes and on account of his rather gormless expression we gather he has tasted the wine… ‘And Noah began to be an husbandman, and planted a vineyard: and he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered in his tent.’ Genesis 9 v20.

Creed, Oliver
