"The Seven Deadly Sins" are a festival of gesture and symbolism, each portraying the very human search for status, pleasure and wealth that we all seem attracted to. The Medieval Church declared them as Heaven-Blockers, I guess... and yet, the priests, monks and bishops pursued them all with wild abandon! Thus, the monks' hooded garb was employed in these delightful bas-reliefs to show that they didn't "practice what they preached"! Hahahaha! So human... cartoon-ishly humorous... the artist lavished his expertise upon the full range of human facial expression in a way that reflects each of the "sins". Magnificent and Bravo! Every guest has a comment about them!
