Antoni Gaudí, The Coronation of the Virgin
First quarter of the 20th century
Nativity Portal of the Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família, Barcelona
Gaudí borrows from two different medieval models for the Coronation. As in the most common model, it is Christ alone who crowns his mother. But the positions of the figures are taken from the model in which the Father crowns a kneeling Mary.
The forelocks rising like horns in the figure on the left are usually an attribute of Moses.
