Amiens, France

Finely carved relief Pisces sign (with the connecting cord) appears on a portal of the west facade of the Cathedral of Amiens, which was built between 1218 and 1269. Picture is courtesy of Vassil from Wikimedia (entry Zodiac). Medieval people ascribed agricultural (more than astrological) meaning to the Zodiac.
