Nave Capital: Men with Braided Beards

Carved capital of men with braided beards in the nave of Schottenkirche Sankt Jakob, Regensburg. This motif is very similar to the intriguing entwined figures on the left side of the Schottenportal. The monastic church was founded by Irish missionaries and dates mostly from the second half of the 12th century.
