"Église St Pierre & Paul, lion and peasant acrotere" Rosheim Things to Do Tip by JLBG
Rosheim Things to Do: 16 reviews and 31 photos
At the lowest part of the western pediment a bearded peasant (monk ?) is crouched while a lion stands behind him with its paws on his shoulders and his open mouth, mooking as if he was to brake his skull with its powerful jaws.
Photo 2 shows were it is standing.
If you enlarge photo 3, you will see that there are actually 4 identical (almost identical!) statues : two on top of the outer walls of the side naves, two at the lower part of the pediment on top of the central nave.
