  • Origin: church of Sant Quirze de Pedret, Cercs (El Berguedà)


When the Romanesque paintings were removed from the church of Sant Quirze de Pedret, remnants of an earlier decoration were uncovered. These are the two fragments, l’Orant (“The Orans”) and el Cavaller (“The Knight”), which were located on either side of the window of the central apse under the painting of the twenty-four elders of the Apocalypse.

In this fragment, the figure of a horseman carrying a standard is framed by a large circle from which the four arms of a cross extend. Outside the circle are two more figures. On top of the horse, a peacock pecks at grapes hanging from a small cross.
