Mosaic
Cathedral, Cefalù

The pictorial program in the bay in front of the apse consists of single figures, with no scenic depictions. Angels of various orders are distributed across the caps of the cross-ribbed vault. Cherubim and seraphim are presented on both the longitudinal and horizontal axes, identified by labels, and holding standards in their hands.
