Tollevast - Saint-Martin

Tollevast - Saint-Martin
The single-nave church "Saint-Martin" in the center of Tollevast dates back to the 11th/12th century. Seigneur Henri de Tollevast, who fought on the side of William the Conquerer in Hastings, founded this church. His tomb can be found inside.

There are many sculpted corbels under the roof of Saint Martin. Many of them depict animals. Here are two snakes. The snakes are obviously dancing and I spent some time, to find out, what kind of dance this could be. Snakes do not dance Tango, Bolero or Foxtrot. I am pretty sure that snakes are gifted belly dancers.
