2009-08-23 Surgères, église Notre-Dame, Charente Maritime, Poitou Charentes

Bold restoration of xix th century must not forget the quality of inspiration corbels and metopes: Zodiac detailed atlases , acrobats, musicians, bear, lions, griffins , basilisks , monkeys, elephants, mermaids .. .

The luxuriance of decoration is found on the arches : sawtooth, logs, bezants, diamond points. It is also found on the cords that are decorative moldings where not less than 116 small figures carrying a large vine are intermingled with foliage.
