Capital with Samson - MET 3D Model
Capital with Samson and an Attendant Fighting a Lion, ca. 1175–1200. Provenance: Palencia, Spain. 3D collection of romanesque art from Palencia here The Met Fifth Avenue, New York City.
This capital, with another one, depict, in a simple, almost abstract manner, a man and an animal engaged in combat. The capitals must have supported a principal arch, perhaps the entrance to the choir of a church. Here Samson, with long hair, struggles with the lion, assisted by two men, one with a mace, another with a knife. Due to its position at the exhibition, in between two display cabinets, can’t register the lateral sides properly, that is the lack of quality of them.
