Modillon à copeaux (wood shavings corbel ©)

The translation in the title is followed by this sign ©; this means that it has been "invented" by me.

A modillon (corbel) with a decoration resembling wood shavings, coming from a plane whilst planing.
This row of modillons supports the corniche (cornice) of the Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption in Gourdon; the uttermost left and right modillons in the picture are modillons à copeaux.
