Autun

I had completely forgotten how wonderful the carving is in the tympanum of the Cathédrale St.-Lazare in Autun: so early, so full of life – and signed by Gislebertus underneath the feet of Christ:-

To the right (Christ’s left) is the Archangel Michael:-

And Satan (I hope I’ve got this right):-

More great carving of the capitals, which look, to my untutored eye, to be by different hands.

This must be Noah’s Ark:-

And Simon the Sorcerer descending head-first to hell:-

A treat….
