Master Radovan, The Harrowing of Hell

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

Standing on some sort of cloud and bearing the standard pictured often in Resurrection images and sometimes in Harrowing of Hell scenes, Christ confronts the demons guarding Hell. Curiously, the figure closer to Christ has a wing on his right foot. The left foot appears to have been repaired; perhaps it also had a wing originally.
