A man wearing a golden tunic and hat. His face is particularly expressive. His eyes are animated, and his mouth open in an enigmatic grin.
It is unclear what the man is holding in his hands, but they may be items related to his trade. St Mary's was particularly popular with the merchant classes of Beverley, with their collective guilds often donating large sums of money to the church. Carvings commemorating these gifts are therefore found throughout the fabric.
The ceiling in the chancel was repainted in 1862, and again in the late 1930s.
