Sculptures in the West Front of Exeter Cathedral

The view shows the northern end of the image screen. Although the niches for the seated kings and the lower angels in this part of the front are in the elaborate style of the 1340s, the kings here are quite different- plainer figures with long, wavy hair. They probably date to the 1370s. The top tier, with standing figures who are probably prophets, dates to c. 1460-80.
