During our visit to St Nicolas; which we wrote about on Saturday, the captials kept vying with the frescos for our attention. We have, as some readers may have noticed, a fondness for beautifully carved stone.
So here are four more of wonderfully carved Romanesque captials from the church in Tavant.
|individual being eaten by probably a manticore [man's face, body of a lion and stinger tail]|
|two cocks fighting; one now sadly headless|
|two mean-looking griffins [body of a lion, wings and head of an eagle]|
|two basiliks? [a cock with a snake's tail] and a cup; the tails end in devil faces|
