|church at Breedon.
|Panel with two figures, dated to the ninth century.
|These draped figures are set in a square-headed frame, in a squashed position. They are standing on tiptoe, and their heads are inclined to each other. Neither figure has a halo, and both are holding plant spray, with a hollow pointed leaf in their right hands. The figure on the left holds a book in his left hand. He is bearded and has long waving hair. The figure on the right has shorter hair.
|Their plant scrolls, along with the deep undercutting of the background, link these figures with the friezes at Breedon.
