A Medieval Fragment
From Tether 3, page 74
Grim-faced, not in the least benevolent (despite his right hand raised in benediction), Christ is centrally bifurcated by a crease, a crease which suggests the piece was folded before being stored. With the left-hand side of the face now worn threadbare, we are confronted by a lacerated, startling Jekyll and Hyde dichotomy. And though this wounded Christ to our eyes may have no more authority than a uniformed flunkey directing traffic, his gaze in the fourteenth century would surely have stopped oncoming traffic in its tracks.
