Abstract

In their trips to Santiago between 1920 and 1927, Arthur Kingsley Porter and Lucy W. Porter repeatedly took photographs of a Romanesque relief depicting Christ in Majesty. The sculpture was reused in the Renaissance crest crowning the Façade of the Treasure. The article analyzes why A. K. Porter was so interested in this piece, linking it to his studies on the relationship between Compostela and Conques and exploring the possibility that it belonged to a failed initial project for the for the Puerta de las Platerías.
