Last Judgment Portal: Christ in Majesty

Central portal of the west front, depicting the Last Judgment (c.1230). At the top of the tympanum is Christ in Majesty, flanked by two angels holding instruments of the Passion (spear and cross) and kneeling figures of the Virgin Mary and St. John (both of whom were present at the Crucifixion).
