Torments of Hell

Torments of Hell
Lincoln Cathedral.
Restored frieze on the west front of the cathedral. It shows the torments of hell awaiting the damned. Main face (from L to R). Lust is punished by biting serpents and monsters, a devil pulls the hair of those guilty of sodomy, a nude miser with a purse around his neck is tormented by serpents and devils, serpents bite the genitals of avarice, and the harrowing of hell showing Christ standing on the devil delivering souls from the jaws of hell.
The original frieze, much weathered, was moved inside for preservation.

S Drury, Lorenzo Kjell Salmonson, forever is a long time, John FitzGerald have particularly liked this photo
