Saint-Sulpice-de-Mareuil (Dordogne)


This rustic capital - probably by the same sculptor as at nearby Saint-Front-sur-Nizonne - is very curious.
Is the long-armed, half-naked female figure a groper, or does she represent Chastity, suppressing the sexuality of the two flanking males ?


The interesting doorway, featuring zig-zag and serpents.
