Norman Romanesque exterior corbel no 28 (similar style to No 44) - sculpture of a female exhibitionist known as a Sheela-na-gig. The sculpture shows a female with a huge round head and puny body with her hand holding open a grossly enlarged vulva. It seems unlikely that this image is of a pornographic nature because it is on a church, and is more likely a warning against the temptations of women. The Norman Romanesque Church of St Mary and St David, Kilpeck Herefordshire, England. Built around 1140 .
