Hound defies gravity
A dog-like beast looks back over its own shoulder and spews out great coils of foliage around a Norman tub font. The beast stands apparently on a wall, at right-angles to the ground in apparent defiance of gravity, its bottom resting on the tail of a bird. It is all most unlikely and rather charming, especially as one follows the foliage around the font and finds a cock, a hen, two fish and a swirling serpent.
