Cluny, farinier, part 2 of 8 (The Four Seasons)

The farinier (granary, or literary flower barn) on the premises of the former abbey of Cluny contains a permanent display of 8 capials from the choir of Cluny III.

Click here for the second album of a series of eight. This capital is called "The Four Seasons". On the four corners the seasons are depicted as human figures, partially hiding between the acanthus leaves. One of the figures wears gloves, another one is nude (possibly Summer), partially hidden in the acanthus.
