#MuseumFromHome: Portal of Paradise - Episode 3

In the third part of our virtual tour on our facade's Portal of Paradise, we take a look at the figures and basestones on the southern side of the portal, including the apocalyptic New York City scenes that are some of the most talked about and misunderstood carvings in the whole Cathedral, and are continually reminded of how each and every feature comes from the Bible.

The fourth and final episode, on the small figures above each forerunner, will be posted next week!
