Part of the Romanesque façade of Assisi cathedral. It is a typical example of the architectural style found in 12th-century churches of Umbria. The façade is divided into three sections. This is the middle section which contains a large and ornate rose window. In the four spandrels around the rose window are the four animal symbols of the four evangelists. Below the rose window is a horizontal recess with three male figures, each standing on an animal. The central figure is known as a telamon – a straight, unbowed male figure acting as a column supporting the masonry above on his head. The two end figures are atlantes – figures who sustain a great burden with their arms and shoulders (in this case the masonry above). Both types of figures are the male versions of caryatids – straight, unbowed female figures acting as columns supporting a structure on their heads.

Thanks for all the recent C&Cs.

Best wishes,
Philip
