Lorignac - Saint-Pierre

Lorignac - Saint-Pierre
Lorginac is a small village, surrounded by vinyards, near the Gironde. The parish church Saint-Pierre in it´s center was built within the 12th century, but got greatly altered in the 19th century.

The left side of the capital, just seen on the previous upload. It is part of the western facade, that survived the great reconstruction process and still is in a good condition.

A devil holds a miser by the neck. Avarice was a deathly sin - and the miser´s purse is indeed well filled. The devil has an enormous hairdo, that looks a bit like headdresses and war bonnets worn by Native Americans. But Christopher Columbus was still "far away"...
