Having selected and prepared the photos of corbels to
show here, I was struck by a feature which appears in many of them. The
figures depicted on said corbels are carved on a bed of horizontal rolls;
being more or less visible depending on the rest of the carving.
It is as if a traditional Mozarabic roll corbel was used
as a base on which to sculpt another figure. The doubt arises as to whether
this mode of sculpting was a result of pure chance or was it a symbolic
reference to former religious history.
In any case, the corbels in question are very carefully
carved and are similar in style to some other sculptures to be found in
the cathedral (for example, the symbol
of the Evangelist Saint Mark on the vault of the cathedral).
