Gustorf Choir Screen (c.1150): The Sun

Relief of the personified Sun 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.
