This master piece is embossed with dimensional cut. It is a very unique piece showing a Lady Godiva riding on a horse.
According to the popular story,Lady Godiva took pity on the people of Coventry, who were suffering grievously under her husband's oppressive taxation. Lady Godiva appealed again and again to her husband, who obstinately refused to remit the tolls. At last, weary of her entreaties, he said he would grant her request if she would strip naked and ride through the streets of the town. Lady Godiva took him at his word and, after issuing a proclamation that all persons should stay indoors and shut their windows, she rode through the town, clothed only in her long hair. Just one person in the town, a tailor ever afterwards known as Peeping Tom, disobeyed her proclamation in one of the most famous instances of voyeurism.In the story, Tom bores a hole in his shutters so that he might see Godiva pass, and is struck blind.In the end, Godiva's husband keeps his word and abolishes the onerous taxes
