Medieval wood carving online
August 31, 2009 9:45 AM   Subscribe

Where are there picture galleries of medieval wood carving (both in situ eg: misericords, pew ends, ecclesiastical accessories like baptism fonts, etc. and free standing figural carving like those of Tilman Riemenschneider, for example) online?

I've tried numerous Google searches and looked over some cathedral websites, only to come up empty. Any suggestions for more comprehensive resources would be appreciated...

Wikimedia commons, search by artist. Riemenschneider.

This is a great book on the subject.

Consider looking at Stave Churches as well. You can probably find a lot of galleries of the wooden carvings especially contacting the people who did the reproductions.
