                         Back to Sculpture of the First Gothic and Classical Gothic
 
 
   
Large angle capital, 1200-1225
 


 

 

Large vegetal capital carved with water leaves at angles, terminating with hooks, and separated by stylised leaves. As an angle capital, only two faces are carved.

The vegetal is not treated with realism but stylised, a feature typical of First Gothic. Yet some features such as the round corbel under the rectangular upper part developped only around 1200.

Large traces of polychromy certainly medieval.

Good conservation, visible lacks. The hook on the side is not broken, as there was only a flat ball.

We are selling another capital from the same monument, although larger in size.
