West Tympanum, Cathedral of St. Anastasia

Zadar, Croatia

The figure in women's clothing on the right I assume to be St. Anastasia of Sirmium, mostly because this is her cathedral and there is no other sculpture on the west tympanum that could be of her. There are no attributes, but the clothing resembles that of an Anastasia relief in the Permanent Exhibition of Sacred Art in Zadar's Benedictine convent.

Similarly, it is a guess on my part that the figure on the left is St. Chrysogonus, the patron saint of Dalmatia, the region of which Zadar is the principal city. Images of Anastasia sometimes pair her with Chrysogonus. The wrapped or sheathed sword that he holds point-down could refer to the saint's renouncing his military offices when he became a Christian. A wrapped sword is sometimes an attribute of St. Julian, referring to his adoption of a life of charity after committing a murder.

The central image is of course a Virgin and Child. In her right hand Mary holds a round fruit (or possibly a ball).
