Angel - Gustorf Choir Screen (c.1150)

Detail of angel at the empty tomb of Christ from the Gustorf Choir Screen (Gustorfer Chorshranken), c.1150. The Romanesque reliefs are damaged but of excellent quality. They originally formed the choir screen in the basilica of Knechtsteden Abbey, northwest of Cologne, and were acquired by the museum in 1939.
