This finely carved fragmentary panel is a 'Te Deum' carving, meaning a panel with figures all facing the same way, evidently looking towards a central panel of the Trinity or some other appropriate subject. The carving was doubtless part of a Te Deum altarpiece made up of panels of subjects such as the Prophets, the Nine Orders of Angels, Male Martyrs and Female Martyrs. This panel consists of two rows of figures, all facing towards their left, the lower row being of a pope, a cardinal, a king (Edward the Confessor) and an archbishop.
