Bust of Gothic Virgin. Ref.201
Bust of Gothic Virgin. Lorraine 14th century.
Important bust of Saint or Virgin of the Annunciation. Life size veiled woman. Full-featured face with almond-shaped eyes and large locks of curly wawy hair sticking out of the veil. Tiny traces of polychromy.
Outstanding by its size, our sculpture can be dated to the first half of the 14th century and was probably placed in a facade niche. The visible germanic influences direct us towards the workshops of Toul.
