    Additional sculptures are on the lateral jambs of the west portal in the form of capitals with well created round bases and fanciful subjects but not biblical in subject similar to corbels.

    Still more statues adorned the portal further out from the arched At the sane height on the right stands a statue of the great Gaston IV on a horse to the right of the portal while on the side left side, a statue of two lions who have partly swallowed a human. Higher up above the major action two statue sentinels stand guard over the church.

    The lower middle level of voussoirs recognizes every day life, particularly activities of everyday life, but at its center are a pair of what appear to be devils. As to the toils, some can be seen to be important as nearby types of activity. Most prominent is the fishing of salmon, boar hunting, mining, creating barrels and the growing of grapes. There is some hint of the way of dress at work.

    Just a few miles from Oloron-Ste-Marie there is an unusual church with a clocher-calvary projecting above its west end. In addition behind the church is a small cemetery with a regional type of tomb stone.
