It's the weekend, and I have some time on my hands because I'm about to start the next edit of my second novel and of course I'll take any excuse to delay the evil hour of commencement, so...

Here's another batch of photographs from the Abbey of Villelangue.  I thought I'd devote today's post to the carved stones, and the carved capitals in particular. 

They're in beautiful condition, with very little sign of weathering (I'm assuming these are the originals, and not replacements, because there's no indication that the masonry's been replaced).  And they keep popping up all over the place, like these examples in the transept:-

And these ones, peeking out from an external wall:-

Clearly, their location hasn't been so favourable to their long term preservation here, and they're looking a bit weathered and miserable.

And here's a third, more grotesque specimen:

So there you have it.  Another glimpse of the lovely details that adorn the place!
