Angels, prophets and the elderly occupy the arches of the central portal of Notre Dame de Paris. They frame the Last Judgment scene sculpted on the tympanum. The angels presented here are on the western facade of Notre Dame, or to be exact, on the central portal in the second northern archivolt. The freshness and candidness of gothic art (art ogival) is shown by their expression. Always benevolent, as shown by the protective gesture of one of the angels and the other ‘s smile, they are strongly present in the daily life of medieval man. In effect, supernatural intervention, and the angels’ and the Virgin’s intercession are commonly admitted realities.
