Nothing New

This is a carving in an ancient Church in Kilpeck, in Hertfordshire, England. Roving Medievalist reminded me of it.

I wonder if this is where British film-maker and comic genius, Nick Parke (who by the way is a committed Christian) got his ideas for Gromit and the WereRabbit in his recent animated movie.
See what you think:
