St. Michel d'Aiguilhe: Choir Vault Frescoes

Choir Vault Frescoes

Frescoes on the vault of the 10th-century choir. Just below center is Christ in Majesty, flanked by the personified sun and moon. Above him is St. Michael the Archangel, the patron of the chapel, with two seraphim. The four corners have medallions of the Four Evangelists alternating with angels.
