Portal Detail: Reception of the Blessed

The souls of the righteous rise from their graves and are received into heaven. Three male figures cradle pairs of souls in their arms; they are probably Enoch, Elijah and Abraham. Detail of Romanesque portal, 12th century. Eglise St-Trophime, Arles, France.
