Nice photos! I really like the ones that just show the disappearing feet :)

Yeah, great pictures.

YouTube has video of another version of the Ascension that takes place at 3:05.

Yeah, those are my favorite. They're hard to find online for some reason.

Who does the middle sculpture? That is particularly cool.

I'm trying to remember... It's a medieval ivory from Norwich cathedral, I believe.

There's a "disappearing Christ" Ascension on a small ivory plaque at the Cloisters.
