Front Door of Cathedral

This is the front door. There is probably a technical term for it, but it is unknown to me, and it seems like a front door. Immediately above the front door is a bas relief image, and above that is the rosette stained glass window.

Detail showing bas relief over front door

This is a detail of the bas relief image above the front door; perhaps an image of hell.

Indoor view of rosette stained glass window

This is an indoor view of the rosette stained glass window, with sunlight illuminating it. It was dedicated in 1977 in the presence of Queen Elizabeth II and President Jimmy Carter.
