On the left-hand side of the late twelfth-century doorway of the church
devilish monsters attack this acrobatic atlante-exhibitionist female.
To the left is a devil with a goat's head. On the right, bizarre monsters bite each other.
The exhibitionist-atlante is not a rare motif, nor are
(though these are particularly fanciful)
- but for the two motifs to combine on a doorway is very rare indeed,
and especially interesting in an area of brick-built churches (between Toulouse and Albi)
where carvings are in any case uncommon.
