Description This apostle was originally attached to a large reliquary or altarpiece. The artist has delighted in the color contrasts, placing a light blue mantle over the yellow and green robe, accented by a red Gospel book. The figure's column-like proportions and simple, straight drapery are characteristic of the Romanesque style at Grandmont Abbey.
