Tympanum: Pilgrims

Detail of the Last Judgment tympanum over the west door, sculpted by Gislebertus around 1130. Here on the lower left, the redeemed rise from their graves and rejoice with an angel. Near the center can be seen two pilgrims with symbols on their bags - a Greek cross indicating Jerusalem and a scallop shell representing Santiago de Compostela.
