St. Thecla

Altarpiece of the Chapel of St. Thecla
Burgos Cathedral, Spain

The Iconian servants of the Thecla story are here dressed as Moors, and at the altarpiece's high pinnacle we see Moors in similar attire being trampled by Santiago Matamoros, St. James the Moor-killer.

Trees identical to those represented in this work may be seen in the riverside promenade near the cathedral.
