While visiting the Sarlat-la-Canéda Cathedral, I noticed this at the back: a form of some sort covered in tacks or nails, with a small hammer.
At a complete loss, I took a photo thinking I’d be able to search for information online to learn something. Unfortunately no combination of words I put into the Google search bar bring me closer to any idea.
Here’s where I need your help.
Do you know what this is, and what its significance is?
UPDATE October 22:
Thank you to PEDMAR10 for solving the mystery for me. Check out his site for a wealth of travel information and personal anecdotes. Thanks again!
