Master of the Braided Columns, 1103-1110. Marble

In the detailed description of the Paradise façade included in the Codex Calixtinus, the columns that flanked both doors stand out. They are pieces to which the four almost complete shafts and two other fragments that are preserved in the Cathedral Museum belong, and their helical reliefs evoke Roman pieces that Gelmírez had had the opportunity to appreciate in situ shortly before. It can be seen the development in these reliefs of an iconographic program, which seems to share a certain unity in five of the pieces although with variations in one of them, where epic scenes are presented.
