Art/Literary - Architecture / Gothic sculpture
English term or phrase: throned angels
The general superiority of French Gothic work was fully maintained in its decorative details. Especially fine is the figure sculpture, which in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries attained true nobility of expression, combined with great truthfulness and delicacy of execution. Some of its finest productions are found in the great doorway jambs of the west portals of the cathedrals, and in the ranks of throned and adoring angels which adorned their deep arches.

Nie rozumiem, czy te anioły siedzą na tronach, czy to jest błąd w tekście - thronged lub thrones - co ciekawe - "gatunek" aniołów (trzecie z kolei w hierarchii). W rzeźbie gotyckiej na tronie siedzi zazwyczaj Bóg/Cgrystus/król/może jakiś święty, ale anioł?
