Description
Detail of the Last Judgment tympanum over the west door, sculpted by Gislebertus around 1130. On the lower right of the tympanum, the damned rise from their graves and march off to Hell in torment. Among them, a greedy man clutches his money bags, a lustful woman has her breasts grawed by snakes, and one sinner is grasped by two giant claws around his head. Two people still sit on their tombs wrapped in grave clothes. Compared with the joyful parallel on the left, they do not look to be in any hurry to cast them aside and stand up.
