ROMANESQUE SANDSTONE SCULPTURE, South-west of France mid 12th century. An eagle intertwined with branches and leaves, from a porch.
Stylistically this sculpture belongs to the tradition initiated at the construction of Angoulême Cathedral. The common features spread throughout Poitou-Charente with close paralells found in e.g. Abbaye-aux-Dames in Saintes
The sandstone of the sculpture is porous with some damage and ageing, but the outlines are still distinct.
Private ruined chapel in Les Landes
