The rectangular niches in the partition walls and the jambs of the central portal contain twelve life-size figures, some of which can be identified as Apostles due to the inscriptions still visible on their haloes.
The picture shows the southern jamb of the main portal on the west façade of the abbey church of Saint-Gilles.
