Norman Romanesque exterior corbel no 1 - sculpture of a quail that it has just killed its young. This is based on a bestiary story that tells of a Pelican that kills its young. It then pecks its breast to draw blood and sits on its dead offspring and the blood brings the young bird back to life. This is an allegory of Christ giving his blood on the cross for mankind. The Norman Romanesque Church of St Mary and St David, Kilpeck Herefordshire, England. Built around 1140
