The corbels on the church of St Peter of Vienne en Bessin (France)

Corbels, stone brackets that support the edge of a roof were quite developped on Romanesque churches in France. Created for these obscure locations, the subjects carved on corbels seem to have been outside traditionnal religious themes. Despicted are animals, grotesques, male heads and geometric shapes. Nobody really knows their use and the meanings. So an local association, Ad'Vienne took them in large 3D photographies, a wonderful effect appreciated by the visitors. One of the contributors was Janetta Rebold Benton, Ph.D. Distinguished Professor, Art History Pace University NY

The exhibition is open every afternoon from 2pm to 6pm. It is located near Bayeux.
