Gargoyle: Nude woman representing one of the Seven Deadly Sins - Lust, um 1310

About the object

The figure of a young naked woman with long hair depicts lust or unchastity, one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Ashamed, the figure is crouching cross-legged. She only manages to partially conceal her nakedness. In doing so, she coheres to the classical figural pose of "Venus pudica" (modest Venus).
