For Porch: Gluttony and Wrath
Caption
A door in the south choir aisle leads to the For Porch, built in the 12th century as an entrance for popes, cardinals and prelates. It is exquisitely decorated, with striped arches, patterned columns, and some fascinating sculpture. The capitals in the porch are carved with the Seven Deadly Sins. Shown here are Gluttony, as a pair of hungry mouths, and Wrath, as a man between two angry wolves.
