The bishop's throne in the choir of Exeter Cathedral, 1312, is a superb example of the Decorated Style of English carving. It is the largest extant bishop's seat in England, and is as tall as the Baroque organ at the entrance of the choir. The wood was originally painted to imitate stone and thus was in contrast to the original choir stalls. The present stalls are 19th century but occupy approximately the same place. © Raguin/MMK
