Came on some  colour slide strips when clearing some stuff. Kilpeck Church in Herefordshire has early door-frame carvings and corbel stone carvings.
I had not examined the images closely previously. This one is of a bear eating 2 children.
According to the bible when the children shouted at the prophet "Go up thou bald-pate" a bear came out and ate them.
I have always thought it more likely that he swung at them and accidentally killed them.
