Description: Hispanic Flemish School. Attributable to Alejo de Vahía ((¿? - 1515) or his circle. "Evangelist". Carved and gilded wooden sculpture with polychrome residue. From around 1500. This sculptor was documented between 1490 and 1505. He probably had Northern European origins and established himself in Becerril de Campos, from where he promoted his work during the Hispanic-Flemish period in Palencia and Valladolid. This figure could well be a Saint Peter, although he is missing his attribute, the key. There are great similarities between this and other sculptures of the saint made by Alejo de Vahía, such as the characteristic curls. Height: 65 cm.
