What type of calendar is this?

My friend bought this wood carved calendar and doesn't know what it's origin is. It's obviously a Gregorian calendar, but while some words are clearly English (or English like) others are unknown. Such as Urae for April.
I've tried googling the words and the images but can't find anything. The top piece is the face of a man with what to me appears like a hat with cross. The bottom has a symbol that seems familiar but, again, I don't know what it is. I thought maybe one of you could decipher this mystery :)

Such as Urae for April.

“URAE” for April looks like “ARIL” to me, compared to the other letters. (For example, the I in FRI above, and the L in JULY.) It’s certainly all English.

Where there should be an “a” they wrote a u. Maybe it is all just bad cursive writing:) because urae looks nothing like April.

@jsalt, well spotted, you are correct. Some letters look unusual but they are used in a way that is consistent with the spelling of the common English names for weekdays and months. Thurs instead of Thu is somewhat creative. Aril must be a carving typo :cool:. Or does someone have a better explanation?
A few errors apparently. Or an inability to write cursive? Maybe they were just trying to be “creative”.
It’s a pretty cool wall calendar regardless.
