Narthex Capital: Unknown Figures

Unknown tall and short figures on a Romanesque capital in the narthex, or Tour de Gauzlin, of Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire Abbey, c.1070-80. To the left is the Visitation; to the right is Christ Blessing. A similar pair is between the Visitation and Annunciation on the other side of the capital.
