Twelfth century entrance to the Collegiate Church of Saint Evroult – Mortain, Normandy

“The Romanesque portal with its triple reveal is decorated with geometric motifs – saw teeth, chevrons, broken staff motifs – which were common in Normandy. But these descend to the base of the opening and show variations radiating out like a glittering crown.”  (Bernard Beck – Romanesque Normandy)
