Legendary figurines by Les Etains du Graal - Kay with chair
Set pieces for the round table by Les étains du graal.
Kay is foster brother to king Arthur, it is Merlin who placed Arthur with Kay's parents to bring him up.
Kay's brother asked Arthur, once he was on the throne, to make Kay his chief justice Seneschal.
He is often descibed as being arrogant and self absorbed.
In brief, he displays few or none of the qualities deemed appropriate to knights and yet as seneschal (justice) he is present at the round table as a knight.
Certain books of the arthurian legend attribute super human powers to sir Kay, such as being able to grow to the size of a tree. It was even said that he wasn't such a good knight, which is demonstrated during a single fight, Yvain wrestles him to the ground.
He is also one of the oldest figures in the arthurian legend.
The chief justice (seneschal) and sir Kay created by Les Etains du Graal is magnificent, the folds of his tunic are exceptional, his helmet is splendid and his facial features so expressive.
The knights' chairs are wonderfully crafted, charming in their simplicity.
A reinforced pin under one foot allows the figure to be attached at its allotted place around the table.
