The Cluny museum has a model whose description does not suffer from a parallel with our Virgin: "This Virgin was placed to the right of Christ, at the foot of the cross, in a Crucifixion scene.
Hands joined, her gaze lost in the distance, her head slightly tilted, she expresses her pain with restraint. The sculpture is remarkable for the harmony of its polychromy: the blue coat is lined with white.
The tried and remarkably expressive face has a pale tint imposed by pain. These discreet hues contrast with the shine of the clothes of Saint John associated with this sculpture. A scene associated with the very birth of Christianity.
In wood, this sculpture is in the round, polychrome and gilded. In this beautiful German work of the XVII we will note the quality of the realization of the deep pleats.
Height 120 cm Note old covers in polychromy and gilding. A few chips.
