Sculpture in the round in alabaster, early 17th century, work of the masters of Mechelen. Tiny traces of gilding. Lacks.
Richly dressed, the fingers of the hand loaded with rings, a crown on the head from which deviates a veil which barely covers the flowing hair, the left hand placed on the heart are attributes which make one think of a saint, specifically Saint Mary Magdalene; unfortunately the right hand is missing, which probably supported an attribute that would have given iconographic certainty, but the elements are still numerous. There also seems to be a hole on the head, then closed, which suggests a halo, and which would confirm the Magdalen, in fact.
Mechelen, known since the 16th century for its splendid production of alabaster, is above all famous for its reliefs and caskets; in reality there is a limited production of small quality sculptures.
