PLATE VII. PALENCIA. The Cathedral. Choir Screen

This handsome metal screen is not only remarkable for the beauty of its detail, but also for the good preservation of the original colouring. It is of the best period, and according to the inscription carved on the plinth, was erected in the year 1522, probably by Cardinal Ximenes as his coat of arms appears in the centre of the cresting, on either side of which are trophies surrounding circular plaques containing the symbols of the four Evangelists. The principal pillars are circular and are wrought with beautiful reliefs. The central gates of the screen contain bronze panels wrought with lions’ heads and figures of Roman soldiers.
