Saint-Mandé-sur-Brédoire - Saint-Brice

Saint-Mandé-sur-Brédoire - Saint-Brice
Saint-Mandé-sur-Brédoire is about 4 kms west of Aulnay, a distance an able man walked probably in less than an hour. It is absolutely clear, that the master-workshops working in Aulnay, did work here as well.

Saint-Brice, a small single nave structure, has many parallels to Saint-Pierre in Aulnay. Some icons were tried here, before they were carved in another scale and another quality for Saint-Pierre. So this church may have served as a "sample book".


The interior of Saint-Brice is pretty simple (compared to the elaborate side portal), but there are some capitals near the apse. Here is one, that seems a bit "rough", compared to the works in Aulnay.

LOL -- he would do great as a coin collection box, even if he can't nod!
