St Michael and All Angels Anglican Church is in the small town of Bothwell in Tasmania. It was built from 1887 and consecrated in 1891. St Michael and All Angels was designed in the Gothic Revival style by Launceston architect Alexander North (1858-1945) and built of local stone by stonemason Thomas Lewis. This stonework is evident in the church interior, including this decorated capital on a column supporting a Gothic-style pointed arch. The capital has foliage decoration, a motif common in medieval Romanesque and Gothic buildings in Europe. Two lancet windows can also be seen in the photograph.
