Marcillac - Saint-Vincent

Most of the Romanesque church erected in the 12th century and dedicated to Saint Vincent is lost or got replaced later. Parts of the impressive western facade, with the intricate friezes, survived.

 

The "lush" style is very typical for the Saintonge area, as well as the "theme". A man entangled by vines and twiners in a jungle like environment (here in a close up). He seems to float in this jungle and a large bird starts to attack him.

 

These "floaters" are an icon, that can often be found here. Souls fighting the evil. Maybe..
