Lust, from the series of Seven Deadly Sins

from the Freiburg Münster tower, c 1310
red sansdstone
originally at 65 meters above the square

deadly, perhaps,
but from the loving treatment of the theme
I expect that the unknown sculptor was not convinced.

Luxuria (Lust) is in marked contrast
to, for instance, Gula... gluttony... with the face of a pig
or Ira... anger... transformed into a lion tearing at his mane

but the pose is... unique
a personal moment
with more than a little
of the serenity of the St. John
