High relief depicting a seated prophet, XIV th c.

Carved in limestone in high relief, this beautiful seated figure certainly represents a character from the Old Testament, who would not be a king because of the absence of a crown.
The character is wearing a long coat, tight at the waist with a belt. On his shoulders is an open cloak, restrained by a "cordelière", whose trimmings are clearly visible on the left shoulder. The folds of the coat fall diagonally on the right foot. This system of folds, as well as the beautiful wavelets hairstyle of the person can date the work in the late fourteenth century. The broken hands only let guess the object held by the figure, probably a philatelic.

Erosion and visible lacks.
Some remains of polychromy.
Fourteenth century.
Height: 54 cm
