In Romanesque architecture pairs of lions are frequently represented, not only as a means of support but also as a symbol of the guardians of the temple. Most probably positioned on the main fašade of the building, the lions depicted on this capital symbolise Christ the Redeemer. They are assuming the role of justices as a demonic figure receiving divine punishment is positioned between their huge feet to remind the faithful of the subject of punishment and of the Last Judgement.
