Maiestas Dominithe Master of Pedret's circle, first quarter of the 12th century, Parish Church of Santa Maria de Cap d'Aran (Tredós, Vall d’Aran), Catalonia, fresco mural painting transferred to canvas. Col&mi

 

This fresco mural painting also has touches of tempera. The painting was removed from the wall and transferred to  canvas.

The iconography is based on the Apocalypse of St. John, very characteristic of Romanesque figurative art.

Apocalypse in Greek means ‘revelation’. John ascends to heaven, where he sees the figure of God the father, as depicted in this work: Christ appears sitting on a throne, with the Book in his left hand and his right hand raised in a sign of blessing. As from this moment, the end of the world will be revealed to him.
