Last Judgment Portal: Weighing of Souls

Central portal of the west front, depicting the Last Judgment (c.1230). In the middle of the tympanum, St. Michael the Archangel weighs souls while a furry Devil and helpers attempt to skew the results in their favor. On the left are the saved and on the right are the damned.
