North Portal (c.1230): Central Bay: John and Peter

Statues on the right side of the central bay of the 13th-century north portal. On the left, John the Baptist, thin from fasting, wears his camel hair tunic and points to a medallion of the Lamb of God; a dragon is beneath his feet. On the right is St. Peter dressed as a pope. He once held a chalice as well as his keys and pastoral staff.
