Grinling  Gibbons is my 16th great grandfather, I'm very proud to be his 16th great grandson and glad he's well known for what such wonderful art he created. Joel Gibbons.

Thank you for posting, I loved this! I do remember well the carving at St.James's Church Piccadilly, from when I lived in London in the 1980's. Am I correct in remembering a carving of his in a church in Greenwich? I lived in Deptford for a while, and Gibbons's workshop was on Evelyn Street, which was the street next door to where I lived. He certainly was a master. Thanks again.

Interesting perspective on the 'political' implications of the carvings themselves (e.g., the bounty of the William III & Mary II reign). More on Wolsey's influence at Hampton Court in future, please. :)
