"Lot 30: A Celtic sandstone Corbal Sheelagh-Na-Gig
totem/fertility figure, of stylized form, 26 x 18 x 18 cm (10.25 x 7.25
Noted by Barbara Freitag (2005) page 155, catalogue number 156, this carving is most unlikely to be of Irish origin. Exhibitionist Irish Romanesque corbels are extremely rare, and the style of the carving seems to me to be southern English, influenced by Aquitanian sculptors.
