Views of the west front of Auxerre Cathedral.
Although never completed, the west facade of Auxerre Cathedral has an impressive array of sculpture from the high relief of the archivolt figures (top) to the bas relief imagery seen in the bottom illustration with its details of the fall and expulsion of Adam and Eve at the top to Noah's Ark in the bottom right hand panels.
