The Guils Frontal

Late XIII century. Tempera on panel

At the centre, the Pantocrator (Christ in majesty) is shown in a mandorla surrounded by the Tetramorph, the symbols of the four Evangelists. At either side, the upper register shows scenes from the life of Saint Stephen -on the left, his stoning, and on the right his burial- while the lower register depicts two pairs of apostles. The frontal is from the church of San Esteban in Guils de Cerdanya (Gerona).
