carved foliate relief

French, circa 1300, limestone with small traces of colour.
This type of foliate carving was often used in French churches where it decorated architectural friezes and similar points of interest. This relief has traces of colour which was often the case in ecclesiastical buildings of this date and demonstrates in a small way how vibrant with colour many buildings were in this era.
