Magnificent West Front of Exeter Cathedral is Covered with Decorated Gothic Image Screen,

The magnificent west front of Exeter Cathedral is covered with a Decorated Gothic image screen, which was begun in the 1340s and completed nearly a century later. It features three tiers of very weathered sculptures, which include the rulers Alfred, Athelstand, Canute, Willliam the Conqueror and Richard II, as well as saints. The images were originally brightly painted.
