Woman holding bunches of grapes
Master of the Porta Francígena. 1105-1112. Marble
This relief fragment of a female with long curly hair who carries in each hand, close to her breasts, individual bunches of grapes would come from the Paradise façade. Regarding its characteristics and dimensions, it could match the image of a seated woman with legs crossed and a lion in her lap, today located on the Platerías façade.
As for its iconographic interpretation, it has been identified with the monthly that was on the aforementioned Paradise façade, corresponding, in this case, to the month of September; although it is more likely that it has a Christological basis in relation to the aforementioned relief from Platerías.
