Detail of 'Thou shalt not commit adultery'

Bas-relief panel on the door of the Madeleine (detail) by Baron Henri de Triqueti (1803-74). 1837. Bronze. Place de La Madeleine, Paris. Photograph and text by Jacqueline Banerjee, 2009. You may use this image without prior permission for any scholarly or educational purpose as long as you (1) credit the photographer and (2) link your document to this URL.

This is the righthand corner of the panel, showing the carving of the harp with a cherub's face, and a piece of music complete with notes, as well as Triqueti's signature and the year this panel was completed. Triqueti was a painstaking craftsman and his attention to detail is everywhere apparent.
