Saint Lazare Cathedral

The Magi

The Romanesque Cathedral of Saint Lazare/Autun contains several unique and intriguing carvings, including the Magi sleeping – although notice the angel touches one of them, and his eyes have just popped open!

The nude figure of Eve is also fascinating. Notice how the vines and foliage of the garden have a distinctly serpentine quality to them.
