Double Chanter Bagpipe Carving carving on oak, Church of St. Eustacius, Tavistock
Discovered by Phil Williams, his message is below.
The carving is on a beam recovered from Tavistock Abbey and on display as shown on a beam 4ft long 6inches thick and 15 inches wide.
The Bagpiper is 10 inches from head to foot and 6 inches elbow to elbow.
The 2 other photos are lit from the left and from the right.
Is it a double chanter? Well, it is if you want it to be. There is a clear distinction at the top, and the chanter played by the left hand is slightly longer than the right hand. Both end in a lump.
