Sculptural group of Saint Martin (oak)

An interesting sculptural group depicting Saint Martin of Tours , dressed as a soldier wearing a helmet, seated on a horseback, cutting his cloak in half to give it away to the scantily dressed beggar in front of him.

According to legend, he met the beggar at a city gate of Amiens, to whom he gave half of his cloak. Because half of the cloak was owned by Rome, he could only give away his own half. According to legend, this beggar was an appearance of Jesus, or the beggar was a symbol of Christ.

Oak with remains of polychrome paint.

Antwerp. Circa 1510/30.

Dimensions: height 32cm ; width 15cm
