Archivolts of the Romanesque west portal (c.1170) of Angers Cathedral, which was inspired by the west portal at Chartres. Traces of paint can still be seen here and there. The inner archivolt has sculptures of the elect and people of many races and languages; the outer two archivolts have the 24 Elders of the Apocalypse.
