Christ en majesté (Christ in Majesty)

Depiction of Christ surrounded by a gloire (aureola).
These pictures seem to be engrafted onto the Christ Pantocrator in Byzantine iconography.
This fresque (fresco) is to be found in the Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption in Gourdon.
See also Christ en gloire (synonym), gloire, majesté and mandorle.
