    Description :

    The Romanesque style was tolerant, more tolerant than Gothic, of eccentric ornament in the form of bizarre animals (flanking the door of St. Jakob in Regensburg, for instance), weirdly unorthodox capitals (e.g. in Basel Cathedral, which consist of fierce beasts eating one another) or luxurious enrichment of window-surrounds (e.g. the apse of Bamberg).
