Title:Chartres Cathedral; Mary, Elizabeth, Daniel (Zechariah); right embrasure, left portal, north transept
Notes:Bases of jamb figures of Mary, Elizabeth, and Daniel (or possibly Zechariah) in north transept. Mary's base is the burning bush of Exodus; Elizabeth's base is probably the prophet Habbakuk filling a water jar (in Bel and the Dragon, Habbakuk brought food to Daniel sealed in the lions' den without breaking the seals, an image of virginal conception); Daniel's base is the dragon idol he killed in Bel and the Dragon. See also Villette, pg. 162.Third Sunday in Advent, Year A:This image is of the Annunciation and Visitation, and it specifically connects with the lectionary reading of the Magnificat in Luke.
