10 Basel Münster Pediment Statues in Basel, Switzerland

The benefactor for the Basel Münster was Heinrich II who was a Holy Roman Emperor when the church was consecrated in 1019. He is depicted on the left of the rose window as the old man with the beard holding a church. On the right side of the pediment is his wife, Empress Kunigunde, holding a cross. Similar statues of this pair are on either side of the tympanum over the main portal however they are portrayed as much younger.
