The Story of Noah

12th century
Cloister, Cathedral of the Transfiguration, Cefalu, Sicily

In the first view shown above one of Noah's sons works on the ark while a second person looks on. The second person may be Noah, if that is in fact a halo behind his head; or he may be another of the sons. On the left we see Noah leading the animals to the ark. In the second view we see on the long side the ark at sea and on the short side the animals being led to the ark.
