Saint John Evangelist. Ref.186
Saint John Evangelist. Carved oak.
Beautiful Saint-Jean in oak wood carved from the Gothic period. Standing, his left leg bent, he is dressed in a dress tied at the waist with a belt and a coat with a chest strap. The clothes have loose, straight folds.
Our saint jean is distinguished from classic productions by his very beautiful face framed by thick and wavy curls as well as by the elegance of his posture.
