The Monk was therefore a good man to horse:
Greyhounds he had, as swift as birds, to course.
His prominent eyeballs never seemed to settle.
They glittered like the flames beneath a kettle:
Supple his boots, his horse in fine condition.
He was a prelate fit for exhibition.
The Monk was the first wealthy religious figure we added to the Canterbury Tales Pilgrims, this is clearly shown by his well caparisoned horse not to mention his elegantly beautiful hunting Hounds. The Hounds are often collected by non Chaucer fans as their timeless quality allows them to fit into any interior style, so do NB that they are sold separately to the Monk himself, but you can click this link if you’d like to see more of them.
Our decorators enjoyed the introduction of the Monk as his wealth allowed us to be a little more decorative, not least on the horses tack. Once more we have used the soft shades of Cobalt blue to great advantage plus a little hunting green for his hat.
