Description: Virgin with Child. Carved gilt and polychrome wooden sculpture. Gothic. 15th century.
Delicate composition of Mary imagery, depicted as a mother holding the Christ Child in her arms. The Virgin is standing in a lightly balanced posture typical of the Gothic period, wearing a tunic of fine fabric which is fitted to her body and is cinched in at the waist. Through the mastery of the sculpting the textile appears to be lightweight and moving, forming soft waves. The Virgin is wearing a crown and a long veil which reaches to her feet. The Child wears a gilded tunic and holds the Holy Scriptures in His left hand whilst giving blessing with the right. The virtuosity of the sculptor in the long hands and delicate fingers as well as with the face is outstanding. Flaws on the fingers of Mary´s right hand. Height: 90 cm
