Gustorf Choir Screen (c.1150): The Moon

Relief of the personified Moon 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.
