3865 – St. John the Baptist Effigy
- 50 cm x 30 cm
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.
