Parez ser qu'esti enllace nun va bien, sal un mensax informando que nun ta disponible.
De toes formes dicir que la ornamentación anglo-normanda ye abondo común nel románicu asturianu, penriba de tolos motivos decorativos con esi orixe, el más popular n'Asturies son les "cabezes rostraes" o "beak heads" en inglés. L'exemplu más meridional d'esti tipu de decoración alcuéntrase en Santa María d'Arbás.
Nun ye d'estrañar qu'apezan esi tipu de decoraciones norteñes n'Asturies, pues los puertos asturianos, como'l d'Avilés, calteníen estrecha relación colos puertos del sur d'Inglaterra y del norte de Francia.

Gracias, Mouguias, por poner este eslabón a unas fotos interesantes.

¿Se sabe si habían artistas normandos trabajando en Asturias?

Me sorprenda también que el sacerdote todavía mantiene la tradición del tejo en la iglesia de Santa María de Llugas. ¡Muy bien!

Thanks, Mouguias, for giving that link to some interesting photos.

Is it know if there were Norman artists working in Asturias?

It's amazing, too, that the priest still maintains the tradition of the yew in the church of Santa Maria de Llugas. That's wonderful.

Alas, Art! I am afraid I was wrong. After checking it, I found out the tradition is today lost. You can read about Llugas at

http://www.celtas.org/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=134

As to the Norman artists, it well may be, since commercial relations were intense between Asturias, France and the Isles. I know for certain that some foreign (English? Breton?) names are found in medieval Asturian private documents, in Aviles to be precise.

Well, given that everything we do is so public today, it's no surprise. A priest might do a mass in the yew if he thought his superiors wouldn't find out, but today there would soon be photos of him online!

-------------------------

Pues, dado que hoy en día todo que hacemos se hace público, no me sorprende. Quizá un sacerdote haga la misa en el tejo si pensaría que su superiores no lo descubrían. ¡Pero hoy pronto habría fotos de él en la web!

Those are pretty nice photos! Very Happy
I'm posting here a link to an image of the Church of Kilpeck in Herefordshire:

in which you can see capitals [capital: top part of an architectural column] similar to the Green Man found at San Xuan d'Amandi.

Es una pena que sepamos tan poco de nuestro patrimonio civil y religioso. San Juan de Amandi o Santa María de Junco son pequeñas joyas, casi más conocidas fuera de Asturias que aquí. Lo digo porque las estoy encontrando en blogs de extranjeros que hicieron el Camino de Santiago.

It's a shame that we know so little about our civil and religious heritage. San Juan de Amadi and Santa Maria de Junco are little gems, almost better known outside Asturias then inside. I have been finding them mentioned in blogs of foreigners doing the Way of Saint James.
