Bust of Saint bishop of 15th century

One of the oldest pieces in the collection. It is possibly a reliquary bust from the 15th century whose relic has disappeared.
Particularly interesting subject considering its age and its associated rarity.

Despite the ravages of time, one can appreciate the finesse of its sculpture and the benevolent look of the Churchman.
The mitre, which is the most solemn headdress of the church, expresses the splendor of sanctity. That's why we speak here of a Holy Bishop.

The mitre traditionally with its two points, refers to the Old and New Testament. It is represented here with four lozenges, probably representing precious stones. It is a so-called precious miter.

Accidents and wormholes.
