Immediately across the street from the West Facade of the Cathedral is a 16C wooden 3 level house with exposed wood beams and carved support brackets at each level. It has its name because of the identification of the figures at the entry (in "modern" 16C dress). It houses a museum devoted to lace, an excellent local craft (fee). (We have never gone inside). To the left of the lower central figures is another female that I could not identify. The doorside Eve looks quite forlorn, but this one is happy (has she just been "wised-up" by the serpent?). The other carvings are saints or symbolic characters.
