sheets of water and a tent knocked down forming a base. The vessel of the holy water stoup is carved

The chi-rho, or monogram constantinian usually disappears in statuary religious

from the Tenth century, with the exception of the region of the central Pyrenees, where

the employment patterns of paleo-christians have continued to be represented with the chi-rho

at least not till the Thirteenth century that we can locate our room with a

some degree of certainty.

capital forming a base. Probably southwest of France.
