Master Radovan: Joseph's Dream and the Slaughter of the Innocents

Mid-13th century
West tympanum, Cathedral of St. Lawrence, Trogir, Croatia

Joseph can be identified by the characteristic cane with a half-moon handle that he holds here and in the scenes of the Flight into Egypt and Nativity. Also, this scene follows immediately to the right of the Adoration of the Magi, following the sequence in Matthew 2:9-13.

On the right side of this photograph are four of the six angels carrying the souls of the slaughtered children to Heaven.
