Orglandes - Notre-Dame

Orglandes - Notre-Dame
The parish church "Notre-Dame", in the center of the small village of Orglandes was erected within the 15th century, but some spolia of the Romanesque churches, that was here before, were saved.

One of them is a relief, "reused" here in the tympanum. Christ in a mandorla surrounded by the symbols of the fur evangelists. The two flaking persons are Saint Peter (right), holding a key, and Saint Paul, holding a writing slate.

Only two fur evangelists one should think. One, as eagle wears feathers and the last as angel is of course a smoothie........ LOL
