NOTREDAME CATHEDRAL, Rouen: 77 reviews and 157 photos


A great many statues are lined in the ambulatory displaying various important or less important people. Here in the foreground, a bishop. In the background a monk that has a tonsure, as many monks in the Middle Ages. But it seems that this guy, instead of just shaving the top of his hair, inadvertently shaved so hard that he removed also the top of his skull.
