Anzy-Le-Duc Church: Capital: Music and Mayhem

Capital: Music and Mayhem

Capital in the nave depicting a devil playing a flute while a strange two-torsoed figure and other people dance. Note the hand on the groin of the "twins." The figure on the right side of the capital looks like an acrobat and the one on the corner has flame-like hair like the musical devil. On the left, a man battles a lion. The lesson seems to be: music leads to all kinds of evil and mayhem.
