Title:Laon; Last Judgment; left archivolts of the south portal, west facade (Last Judgment Portal)
Notes:The archivolts depict angels sounding their trumpets, carrying babies to Abraham's bosom, and giving out crowns to the blessed. On the topmost arch Christ calls from the temple door to the virtuous virgins with lighted lamps, while the foolish virgins, with their lamps spilled, find the temple door shut. [Martinet 6-7]
