Large relief Of The Resurrection in oak - Flanders, late 15th Century

This beautiful and large relief carved in oak depicts the Resurrection of Christ, three days after the burial of the body of Jesus. Christ is represented half-length, above the knees, emerging from his tomb, according to a composition appreciated by Flemish artists of the 15th century, as evidenced by several pax in ivory, or even bronze plates from the former Rothschild collection, now in the Louvre Museum. Christ wears his shroud in a cape, held on his vigorous and muscular torso by a sumptuous cabochon, comparable to that admired on an imposing full-length Flemish Christ of the Resurrection, kept at the Metropolitan Museum and in New York and dated from the very end of the 15th century (16.32.200). Around the Savior, the witnesses of the miracle have been carefully represented, two Roman soldiers, one of whom still seems drowsy. At left, an angel who once had to face his counterpart in symmetry, magnifies the revelation of the risen body of Christ by pulling his heavy shroud as if to unveil it, echoing the unveiling of the liturgical mystery that was to take place on an altar during mass, in front of the altarpiece that our relief once included.
