This grand Medieval portal originally served as the main entrance to the small Augustinian abbey church of Saint-Laurent in central France. At the suggestion of George Grey Barnard, sculptor and collector of Medieval architecture and sculpture, two smaller doorways were added on either side of the portal when it was installed in the Museum in the late 1920s.
