Architectural Frieze


On view at The Met Cloisters in Gallery 04

The miniature architectural panorama may be a schematic representation of Jerusalem, or perhaps of the monastery of Cluny. This frieze is believed to have come either from a screen in the Benedictine monastic church there or from a contemporary Romanesque house in the adjacent town.
