The Devil Is In The Detail

My sister Clem and I spent the afternoon dressing The Homestead for the final open house that takes place tomorrow afternoon.

My uncle deposited a giant, carved oak sideboard there as it was too big for his new home. I've never examined it before. It has a huge mirror and I always turn away from my image.

The whole thing is wreathed in foliage and fruit. Plums, peaches, nuts and dog's bottom medlars. It wasn't until I started polishing it that I noticed what looked to me like devils, high up, one each side.

I have done a little research since coming home and am wondering if they are actually green men?
