spandrel in angel choir, built 1256-80; iconographically odd, as king david is shown with angel's wings, with dubious biblical authority as neither II Samuel. 14 (where a woman sucking up to him twice calls him an angel) or psalm 139 (where david merely imagines flying on the wings of the morning) are really quite enough reason to portray him thus.
