Is this Mr Abif?


Recommended Posts

See the title page to the 1611 King James Bible, at the top, just below the holy dove, stands a little man, almost in the shade.

He sports a great lump on his head - the result of a mighty blow from a mason's mallet?

He holds his square close.

 

Is this the fabled Hiram Abif modern Freemasons speak of? I wonder.

 

He seems in dire need of a good dentist.

 

Notice the fingers in this artwork.
