Bully (Calvados)

On the remarkable tympanum of the church of Saint-Martin is a scene which has been crassly misinterpreted
as Daniel in the Lions' Den.

It is, however, a classic scene of punishment of sin, similar to many on capitals on Romanesque churches
(e.g.
Deyrançon, Puypéroux). The naked human figure is definitely a Luxuria figure, though doubtfully exhibitionist.

The legs completely outstretched to fit the tympanum recall the enigmatic Luxuria figure on Muiredeach's Cross
at
Monasterboice in Ireland.
