Tabernacle circa 1180. This Romanesque goldsmiths' work and carving combines widely varied foliage patterns with figures that are classically inspired. Its function has been much debated. The iconography, or subject matter centre's Christ's redemption of mankind, fulfilling Old Testament prophecy. This indicates that the tabernacle probably housed the consecrated bread for the Mass.
