UNKNOWN MASTER, English

Yorkshire Museum, York
19th-century excavations in the southern aisle of St. Mary's Abbey in York revealed 12 life-size statues. They are thought to have been portal figures, though their original positioning cannot be reconstructed on the basis of the ruins of the abbey.
Eight of the statues are Apostles, among them St. John, shown here.
