Door Panel with an Interlace Design

Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This is one of seventy-two plaques from the large bronze door of the monastic church of San Clemente a Casáuria, in southern Italy. They were commissioned by Joel, abbot from 1182 to 1191. This panel bears an interlace design, perhaps inspired by Islamic textiles or metalwork. A second panel, Walters 54.1058, depicts the three-turreted castle of Fare d'Abrile, one of 20 monastic properties represented on the door panels of this church.
