|The architecture of the church at West Knoyle is of the
decorated period (late 12th early 13th centuries) and adorning the tower
on the corner directly opposite the main entrance to the churchyard is
this monstrous testicle licking anus shower. This figure is posed in
much the same position of feet to ears as another testicle licking anus
shower at nearby Mere some 3
miles distant. on the right adjacent corner there is a carving of a dog
with it's head to tail. On closer inspection this figure too is licking
its genitals. This could be an indication of how we are supposed to
interpret this figure. A man acting like a dog perhaps? Possibly
indicating a sinful, bestial nature?
Unfortunately I have not been able to find out much about the church or its figure to date. If you have any information please get in touch.
