Cavanac (Aude)

Two unique and remarkable re-mounted corbels on this interesting church,
which is just SE of Carcassonne.

First, a female exhibitionist most unusually sticking out her tongue and holding her chin in the manner of a beard-puller.
Two scaly, demonic figures place a hand each on her forehead, behind which is acanthus-leaf decoration.
A hand holding a cauldron
(representing Hell ?) hangs down on one side.

Second, an ithyphallic wolf has a lamb in his very toothy mouth.

For more information on this church, see,
from where these photos were taken.
