This is a mini-series on The Cloisters of NYC. It's a composite structure that incorporates elements from five medieval French cloisters which were disassembled and reassembled in Upper Manhattan in 1934-38. You can read more about it here
. We visited there in April.
The trefoil arch of this doorway from the monastery of Moutiers-Saint-Jean (Burgundy, France, ca 1250), is decorated with the Coronation of the Virgin attended by two kneeling angels.
But look at the 6 kneeling angels above them as well.
Below the arch on either side stand the Merovingian kings, Clovis and Clothar.
Through the doorway you go into the chapel that's tomorrow's post.
