St Lawrence $5

Based on a carved medieval relief.
St. Lawrence was a Roman martyr who was tortured and died for his faith roasted on a giant gridiron. It is reported that during his torture he called out to his guards saying "This side is done, turn me over and have a bite". For this reason he is both the patron saint of cooks and of comedians.

Arbour of Love $5

The Owl $5

Reproduction.
Although revered by the Greeks, Romans and Celts as a symbol of wisdom and insight, during the Middle Ages, the owl became associated with witchcraft because of its nocturnal nature and its image was worn to ward off evil. In medieval period bestiaries, the owl was symbolic of the Jews who "preferred the night of their ignorance to the fair day of Christian belief".

Pilgrim Pecker $5

Reproduction.
Here is a jaunty phallus all dressed up to leave on pilgrimage with his scrip (small bag) at his side. To see him on his way, an adoring lady is placing a crown on his head. He appears to have quite a head for adventure!
