St Peter's Church, Siddington (South Doorway)

Recent Photograph of St Peter's Church (South Doorway) (Siddington)

The south-porch tower shelters this fine Norman doorway. According to Buildings of England, the tympanum shows “Christ in Majesty flanked by two kneeling figures, one St Peter, the other possibly a donor”, but the central figure holds the keys, the figure to the left has a halo, the one on the right not - so is this St Peter sitting in judgement?
