Amiens Cathedral Zodiac
The quatrefoils or quadrilobes of the facade portals depict here the Picard calendar made of zodiacal signs associated with seasonal scenes of the rural life; They are to be read by vertical pair; On our first visit in 2003 I pictured the zodiacal quatrefoils under a golden light and not all the ones beneath depicting the rural activities of the same period because I did not know that they were shown by vertical pair; I pictured them under a rainy day in 2007 so their colour is different in this laborious collage; France Picardie Region Somme Department Amiens Capital Cathedral Notre Dame UNESCO World Heritage in 1981.
