Gretchen Cornwall – Author, Historian & Speaker
The wood statue is easily from the 12th to 13th century – In times past, a Templar cross was carved on his back, a Hebraic letter ‘Y’ The owner gifted the statue into my care for safe keeping.
I had the opportunity to interview her in brief on her 7 years studying the statue.
The statue clearly pre-dates Early Henry Sinclair – the owner believes it is meant to represent his voyages to North America in 1398 – There are minute carvings and ink drawings on the statue that must be viewed under powerful magnification. They do not appear here as there will be other episodes to follow for a complete exploration of the statue.
We are looking for carbon dating assistance – It is a costly investigation –
Part 2 and 3 will be released in the coming months – Thank you for following my work and I hope you gain inspiration here –
