The Portal

The interface between the secular and the sacral. Since 500 years people at the West Portals of Cologne Cathedral move on the threshold between the worlds. Underneath the depictions of the Gospel, the apostels, the madonna and the three Magi (whose relics since the Middle Ages attract pilgrims from all over the world) human fates in search of salvation are reflected. At the gates you can catch a glimpse of catholic devoutness, revealing a hidden, hiding, almost invisibly practised faith.

The Portal is part of the cyle Black East Wild West
