And here are those two angles again representing the two Testaments, this time on a bronze plaque from Clonmacnois dating to around 1100 -despite the absence of the figures of Our Lady and St John and the continuing the earlier tradition of St Longinus and Stephaton alotted to their traditional placed beneath the Cross.
