|Caption:||The magnificent west front of Exeter Cathedral is dominated by a Decorated Gothic image screen begun in the 1340s and completed nearly a century later. It features three tiers of very weathered sculptures, which include the rulers Alfred, Athelstand, Canute, Willliam the Conqueror and Richard II. The sculptures are informal and lively, sitting cross-legged in apparent conversation. The images were originally brightly painted. One downside to the fine-looking screen is that it covers up the bottom part of the west window. Exeter Cathedral, Exeter, Devon, England.|
