Renaissance Apostle Statue. Ref.202
Renaissance Apostle Statue. Northern France or Flanders.
Beautiful limestone apostle. Beautiful and very expressive bearded face with curly hair. He is dressed in antique style and in a dynamic posture that contrasts with the Gothic figurations of previous centuries.
Our apostle raises a part of his robe with one hand and had to point his missing arm to the left. The raised knee amplifies the movement and dynamism of the sculpture. On custom stand.
