Nicholas de Kastav, Three Prophets

Church of St. Mary, Beram, Croatia

The scrolls above the prophets give their names. Daniel is on the left, Moses in the middle, and on the right a prophet whose name has faded away. Moses has three attributes: the horns, the rod, and the tablets of the Law. Daniel's green hat is de Kastav's rendering of the Phrygian cap in which he is sometimes portrayed – "in allusion to his time in Babylon," according to Duchet-Suchaux (113).
