Medieval Frieze Virtues of Honor English Sculpture Relief. Inspired by a William Morris & Co.-produced tapestry in the Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester, England. A masterpiece of medieval design, this work by artist Marianne Stokes (1855-1927) celebrates the virtues of courage, caring, love, wisdom and fidelity. Rich with the heraldic images of brave knights and fair ladies, this oversized, more than 3½-foot-wide masterpiece is a high-relief, three-dimensional work of art captured in stone-finished quality designer resin. A breathtaking focal point of historic sophistication. William Morris (24 March 1834 - 3 October 1896) was an English textile designer, artist, writer, and socialist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the English Arts and Crafts Movement. Morris wrote and published poetry, fiction, and translations of ancient and medieval texts throughout his life. His best-known works include The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems (1858), The Earthly Paradise (1868-1870), A Dream of John Ball and the utopian News from Nowhere. He was an important figure in the emergence of socialism in Britain, founding the Socialist League in 1884, but breaking with the movement over goals and methods by the end of that decade. He devoted much of the rest of his life to the Kelmscott Press, which he founded in 1891. The 1896 Kelmscott edition of the Works of Geoffrey Chaucer is considered a masterpiece of book design.
