Daniel and Isaiah
Master Mateo and his workshop. Ca. 1200. Granite
These two figures, identified with the prophets Daniel and Isaiah, from Master Mateo’s stone choir are currently located on the intermediate level of the first section, on the left side of the façade of the Holy Door. Both had originally occupied, together with Ezekiel and Jeremiah, the space reserved for the “major prophets” in the first section of the façade on the north side of Mateo’s choir.
The sequence would begin with the delicate image of Isaiah, wearing a Phrygian cap, like its homonym in the Portico of Glory. He has a neat beard, crossed legs and his face tilted. He puts his right hand to his chest while with his left hand he holds a vertical scroll on his knee that falls to the ground. In fourth place, after Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel, following the canonical order, it can be seen the image of Daniel, also wearing a Phrygian cap, reserved in the choir for the major prophets with a youthful face.
