Bookworm


This is Friar Tuck, one of Robin Hood's 'merry men' who seems to be relaxing and reading a book, probably a Bible, as he was a religious man, although I don't know to which order he belonged.

He is often portrayed in films and on TV as a lover of food and hence his rotund appearance, although apparently he was very good with the sword when riled.
