Description

A view of Bishop Harold Browne's tomb in Winchester Cathedral. Bishop Browne is in a recumbent pose, his hands pressed together in prayer. At his feet, a dragon sleeps. Its feet wrap over the edge of the effigy. Below the effigy are sculptures of saints, which are encased by Gothic-style, decorative architecture.
