Fontaines d'Ozillac (Charente-Maritime)
Acrobats were considered to be 'unnatural' or 'defying nature', and mouth-pulling was code for theatrical entertainment. So this corbel is telling the illiterate beneath that actors and tumblers are lewd and wicked people and will be damned eternally -so it would be better not to attend any of their performances.

Also at Fontaines d'Ozillac is this corbel of a sinful couple.
