Angevin Architectural Delights

Here are some more details of the Maison d'Adam, the late 15th century timber framed building in the centre of Angers. To see my previous post about it, click here.

The most famous of the carvings, the 'Three Balled Man'.

Saint George (or Saint Michael) slaying the dragon.

The Lovers.

That's no three-balled man.... that's a full set.... meat and two veg.... he's a very wooden flasher!!

I agree with Tim, this is what we call in French a service trois pièces.
