Traditio Legis Ivory

León, 1060
Ivory
The Louvre, Paris

Seated on a throne before a mandorla, Christ hands a tablet of the Law (?) to St. Paul, who holds up a small book (his epistles?). On the left, St. Peter holds up what I take to be stylized keys. Above the image of Christ is a symbolic representation of him as the Lamb of God. Below him are four angels, and beasts representing the four Evangelists are represented in the corners.
