Arthur, The legendary English king, was the son of Uther Pendragon, and featured in countless poems and stories of chivalry which have captivated audiences for centuries. The French poet and troubadour Chrétien de Troyes authored many tales of Arthur and his knights of Camelot. These 12th century stories gave birth to the romantic idealogy of chivalry and inspired endless other writers, poets and artists to spin their own take on the Knights Of The Round Table.
From the pre-raphaelite poets and painters such as Tennyson and Waterhouse in the 19th century, to the world of 20th century theatre and cinema including Camelot and Excalibur, these wonderful stories of the mystical world of Arthur and Merlin are enjoyed to this day.
These exquisite carved resin pieces are finished with a deep russet and cream colouring, and are sure to look incredible anywhere in the home!
