Assumption Tympanum

13th century?
Stone relief
Church of the Assumption, Kolocep Island, Croatia

As in many 13th- and 14th-century Assumptions, Mary is in a mandorla that is lifted aloft by angels. Clouds cover the lower tip of the mandorla. The church was built in the 13th century, so the tympanum may be of the same period.
