The 16th century carvings on the pews in the 'new' chapel at the Château d'Ussé are well worth looking at. Fine carving in both wood and stone is a feature of this Renaissance private chapel. Some of it is of course serious and religious in theme (God, Christ and all the big name apostles are featured). In common with other churches though, the sculptors often relaxed the themes on the pews. The pew arms seem to be rather more decorative, and as is traditional, the misericords are often amusing.
Considerably less weather beaten than Leonardo's version!
