Vinax (Charente-Maritime)


On the left, an acrobatic feet-to-ears female with bulbous eyes,
and a "belt of strength" below her which girds part of another figure,
or a cylindrical column.

On the right, by a different sculptor, two figures (male and female ?) performing what seems to be an acrobatic, sexual act.


Two monks kissing.

- as is this wimpled, feet-to-ears caryatid female at

Chaix (Vendée)...


...whose agonised expression and eyes (especially) prefigure several of the Irish figures.
