Long Description:
This frieze is in the front of Church Santiago in A Coruña.

"The two ARCHIVOLTS are adorned with plant motifs: the smaller one shows two baquettes separated by a half-reed from which large quadruple rosettes with a central button emerge. The larger thread is adorned with a ringed rod behind which leaves of cut profiles appear. The set resembles the arches of the vaults of the Pórtico de la Gloria.

In the TYMPANE we can see an Agnus Dei with a clear Matean affiliation, holding with its leg the cross flanked by two flowers with a prominent central button (as in the one in SANTIAGO DO BURGO).

Here it is supported by two mochetas with bovine heads, the style and model of which are in relation to those of some corbels in the apses."
