Norman Romanesque arch and tympanum of the south doorway of the church of St Peters, Rowlstone, Herefordshire, England. The arch has rolled mouldings which is framed by a thin row of chip-carved triangles. Inside is a relief sculpture of Christ Pantocrator or Christ in Majesty. This design is typical of the prevailing iconography used in the eastern Roman Byzantine Empire. Christ is depicted in an oval mandorla which was used in the Byzantine Eastern Orthodox Church to represent a moment which transcends time and space, such as the Resurrection. The mayoral is being supported by flying angels. The face of Jesus Christ's was removed either in the reformation or by Puritans after the English Civil War. .
