Historical Context:
Wax rubbing of the funerary brass of Sir Edmond Tame (d. 1534) and Elizabeth Tyringham. The original brass is located at St Mary’s Church in Gloucestershire, England. The full brass includes his firth wife Agnes who stands on his right. They had four children before her death in 1526. Scholars think that the figures of Edmond and Agnes were carved first after Agnes’ death and that the brass of Elizabeth is a later edition due to the different styles between the two women.
