Church of SS Lot and Procopius

The Western panel has a square composition, with four trees diagonally centered, and pairs of animals between them, such as two hares facing a rock, and two stags drinking water. The two bulls on either side of a burning altar has an inscription below that quotes Psalm 51:19 "… then bulls will be offered on your altar" which makes the scene an allegory of sacrifice.
