                     The western portals of Amiens Cathedral are famous for their elaborate sculpture, featuring a   
                      gallery of locally important saints and large eschatological scenes.     
                      Statues of saints in the portal of the cathedral have been identified as Saints Victorious and   
                       Gentian, Saint Domitius, Saint Ulphia, and Saint Fermin.
