Alabaster plate in high relief illustrating a forgeron working on a metal object (a helmet?). A young woman is in front of him holding in her left hand an ovoid vase or reliquary that she is holding in her right hand.
The scene represented is being studied.
The whole is gracious, accentuated by the inclination of the faces, and was undoubtedly polychromed (numerous traces).
The plate must have been broken in the middle, then stuck back together.
Catalonia, attributed to Bernat SAULET, 14th c., known for his great altarpiece of the monastery Sant Joan de les Abadesses (Episcopal museum of Vic)
