Christ in Majesty, 12th century

    Sculpted bas-relief on two limestone slabs representing Christ in Majesty enthroned in a mandorla. The Christ is holding the Bible in his left hand and conferring a blessing with his right. This relief has been moved to the modern church, but the sculpture was originally lodged in a niche in the gable of the east façade of the church of Saint-Sauveur, which was ruined in 1944.
