Wooden Church Artefacts
Description:
This category is for wooden artefacts - Objects can be entered in this category from within and around churches and other places of worship. We are looking for "unusual" and interesting objects, and prefer not to be a category of duplicate waymarks.
Expanded Description:

Below are examples of some of the type of object we are looking for -

Baptism Fonts & Holy Water Stoups -
A Baptism Font serves as a receptacle for baptismal water. There are some instances of wooden fonts inside churches. We are looking for this type of object.

Wooden Font

A holy water font or stoup is a vessel containing holy water which is generally placed near the entrance of a church. In the Roman Catholic Church it is also called a bénitier. It is often placed at the base of a cruxifix or religious representation. It is used in the Catholic Church, Anglican Churches, and some Lutheran churches to make the Sign of the Cross using the holy water upon entrance of the church. (Ref. Wikipedia)

Holy Water Stoup

Memorial Effigies -
An effigy is a representation of a specific person in the form of sculpture or some other three-dimensional medium

14th-century wooden effigy

Bench Poppyheads -
Poppyhead is a form of carving of the top of the end of a bench or a choir stall. Its name is unrelated to the poppy flower. It is derived, by way of Old French, from the Latin word puppis, which means the poop or the figurehead of a ship. In its simplest, and its most usual form, it has the appearance of a stylised fleur-de-lys. In some cases, it consists of a much more intricate carving (Ref. Wikipedia). See also History of church Pews

Carved choir stalls -
The choir area is occupied by sometimes finely carved and decorated wooden seats known as choir stalls, where the clergy sit, stand or kneel during services. The choir may be furnished either with long benches (pews) or individual choir stalls. There may be several rows of seating running parallel to the walls of the church. (Ref. Wikipedia)

Choir Stalls
 

Pulpits -
A pulpit is a raised stand for preachers in a Christian church. The origin of the word is the Latin pulpitum (platform or staging). The traditional pulpit is raised well above the surrounding floor for audibility and visibility, accessed by steps, with sides coming to about waist height. (Ref. Wikipedia)

Rood Screens and Dados -
The rood screen (also choir screen, chancel screen, or jubé) is a common feature in late medieval church architecture. It is typically an ornate partition between the chancel and nave, of more or less open tracery constructed of wood, stone, or wrought iron. The rood screen would originally have been surmounted by a rood loft carrying the Great Rood, a sculptural representation of the Crucifixion. (Ref. Wikipedia)

... and many others, including Carved Altars, Wooden chairs (Ref. History of Church Chairs), Alms boxes (Ref. Wikipedia), Parish chests, Lecterns. So long as they are interesting.
Wooden artefacts from other places of worship i.e. Buddhist temples, Hindu temples, Mosques, Synagogues, Gurdwaras, etc. will be accepted, so long as they meet the category criteria.      

What we are NOT looking for are mundane, everyday, objects. i.e. pews, seating, wooden units etc. that are modern and / or have no historical interest.

Absoluteley no wooden pasta strainers of Pastafarianism!

Plain wooden objects of significant historical interest, will be accepted, but must be supported with doccumentary evidence such as a Wikipedia entry, or dedicated web page (for example the Grant pew, Gallena, Il.)

We will NOT accept objects which have their own category, such as Churches, Lych gates, Crosses (including Outside Stations of the Cross), Windows, Bells, Towers, Clocks, Sundials etc. (exceptions may be made on a case by case basis, but these items will have to be really exceptional).
 Please give an explanation for reasons the waymark is exceptional, and should be included, in the Private Message section of your submission.

 
Instructions for Posting a Wooden Church Artefacts Waymark:

Objects being waymarked should be on permanent display. Photography of objects during services is highly discouraged.

Please research your artefact and provide any historical information you can find to create a good waymark. If making a permitted quote, which must be placed within quotation marks [blockquote is also acceptable], please give credit to the originator of the text.

At least three descriptive sentences regarding the object written by the Waymarker, must be included. Please try to find some additional supporting documentation if possible. Only one listing per item is allowed (we do not want 20 waymarks for each individual pew or poppyhead, for instance)

Coordinates should be taken from the entrance of the church, or approximate location within the building if possible.

At the very least, two photos should be added, that you have taken yourself - one close up of the object and another of the general area with the object in view if possible. Additional photos are always a bonus.

Any other unusual wooden object will be considered by the officers. Their decision will be final.

We will NOT accept objects which have their own category, such as Churches, Lych gates, Crosses (including Outside Stations of the Cross), Windows, Bells, Towers, Clocks, Sundials etc - (exceptions may be made on a case by case basis, but these items will have to be really exceptional) .
Please give an explanation for reasons the waymark is exceptional, and should be included, in the Private Message section of your submission.

Naming convention - Name of Object - Name of Church - Town/City, State/Province/County and/or Country


Given that Waymarking is an activity enjoyed globally, we will happily accept Waymarks in any language, as long as an English translation is included for, at least, the Long Description.
