The Black Friar, Relief, Pocock St.
A relief comprising a stylised representation of a blackfriar - in this case literally, as he is represented with African facial features - riding on a donkey. In his right hand he holds a crop and in his left a walking stick with a T-shaped handle. Behind the riding figure is a stylised representation of water, presumably the Thames. The relief overall is in the approximate shape of a cross superimposed on a rectangle, the friar's head and donkey's front legs forming the extremes of the vertical axis and the donkey's head and tail, emphasised by the background of the river, the horizontal axis of the cross.
