Information:

This effigy of St. John the Baptist formed part of the Museum's Midsummer Celebrations in 2017.  The effigy was baptised in the River Valency as part of a traditional ceremony (originating in Russia, performed in Boscastle for the first time) to bring fertility and health to the village.

The effigy was expertly crafted by Gillian Nott.
