Medieval Canecillos (carved wooden beams)
Intricately carved with a diverse array of motifs, these Canecillos adorned the exterior beams that gracefully extended from the walls of structures, be it the intricate details of vegetal patterns or the captivating presence of human, animal, or enigmatic faceless figures. While frequently gracing the interiors of churches, they were also found in homes, as they were believed to bear protective qualities. In domestic settings, they often featured in less opulent materials than their grander counterparts found in grand edifices.
Circa 13 - 14th Century
