Romanesque vegetal capital



Mid-XII c. capital with vegetal carving on three faces.

A central flower with four petals emerge from a central stalk, flanked by two rinceaux, terminated by hooks, surmounting a flower emerging from two palms.

The upper part (tailloir) is rectangular and holds a register of triangles in relief. Some traces of polychromy are still visible.

This pilaster is a rare testimony of romanesque architectural carving. Carved in a soft limestone, this pilaster is in medium state of conservation.
The left side still holds vivid carving, while the right side is more worn out.
