Capital from Sant Miquel de Fluvià
Capital decorated with figures, presenting a mermaid-fish on each of the four sides. Its composition, strictly symmetrical, shows the beings frontally, with a forked tail that is curved and points towards the corners; the ends of the tail are held by the corresponding hands, which at the same time hold a fish, with the head pointing down. The scheme is developed on a smooth background and connects with a smooth fine abacus, with slightly projecting volumes that evoke the corner dice of other capitals. There are no signs of the existence of a neck. The relief shows the clear volumes, with the details marked superficially, and it maintains a certain roughness, almost certainly, and in part, due to the type of stone used.
