Daniel in the lions' den - Malines Alabaster Early 17th century

A beautiful alabaster plaque carved in low relief with heightened gold in its original oak frame, decorated "a pastiglia" with rich interlacing foliage and floral cabochons. Represented is a scene from the Old Testament where Daniel was thrown into a pit where there were seven hungry lions, for killing the dragon venerated by the Babylonians, under the reign of Cyrus the Younger.

This representation is exceedingly rare.

Malines / Mechelen. Early 17th century. Without monogram.

In good condition with minor losses to the pastiglia of the frame and some stable cracks and slight wear to the alabaster itself (as usual).

Dimensions: of the frame: 22cm x 19,5cm ; of the plaque : 12,5cm x 10cm
