Santa Maria del Vilar

In many ancient pre-Catholic traditions we find the serpent (or kind of mix of serpent and dragon as here) as guardian of sacred places. A troubling figure of Romanesque iconography, it possesses the versatility of its distant antecedents in the sacred art of ancient civilizations. It is not impossible that in Romanesque art it has retained its symbolism of the verticalization of the human and its unholy claim to divine privileges.
It is also a symbol of wisdom, of superior wisdom received from one or more gods.
At the time of Romanesque art, Celtic traditions were still alive and the artists who decorated the churches perpetuated this knowledge in cryptic form through symbols so that future generations could interpret them.
A form of fighting against the compulsory catholicization and the obliteration of the religions that preceded it.

++++

Dans beaucoup d'anciennes traditions pré-catholiques nous trouvons le serpent (ou une sorte de mélange de serpent et dragon comme ici) comme gardien des lieux sacrés. Figure troublante de l'iconographie Romane, il possède la polyvalence de ses lointains antécédents de l'art sacré des anciennes civilisations. Il n'est pas impossibl qu'en art Roman il ait conservé son symbolisme de verticalization de l'humain et sa revendication impie de privilèges divins.
Il est aussi symbole de sagesse, d'une sagesse supérieure reçue d'un ou des dieux.
À l'époque de l'art Roman les traditions celtiques étaient encore vivaces et les artistes qui décoraient les églises ont fait perdurer cette connaissance de forme cryptique à travers des symboles pour que les générations futures puissent les interpréter.
Une forme de lutter contre la catholicization obligatoire et l'effacement des religions qui l'ont précédé.

Lovely detail, Isabel. I thought of a dog head, but in the second image it becomes clear it's a dragon. Beautiful light too!
