Capital with winged animals facing each other

Second half of the 12th century
33 x 32.5 x 32 cm
From the Romanesque Cathedral of Vic (Osona)
MEV 10824

This capital has its four sides decorated with winged monsters facing each other and joined at the head, set at the angles in the place that on a classical capital would correspond to the volutes. The wings and the tails of these monsters are intertwined and describe a beautiful pattern of curves and countercurves that fill the four sides of the capital with rhythm.
