Bishop Odo – Earl of Kent & Bishop of Bayeux
Newest in the 1066 Bayeux Tapestry Collection is Bishop Odo – former, some say tyrannical, Earl of Kent & Bishop of Bayeux, France.
Widely considered the most likely candidate to have commissioned the Tapestry, Odo was William’s half brother & a key strategist in the Battle itself. He later ruled England when William returned home to France.
The colour palette is designed to tie-in with the rest of the Series but there are decorative flourishes to add breadth & depth. In technical terms he’s one of the most complex & intricate pieces we’ve made, with almost 20 hand-made stages to bring him to life.
Odo is the 5th figure in this series & is modelled by Tony Bennett with decoration design by the Rye Design Team.
