An extremely rare carved, partially gilded and polychrome painted walnut statue depicting the angel Gabriel from an Annunciation group. The angel is depicted standing, his affable face with almond-shaped eyes. He is dressed in a long choral dress with long vertical folds and painted with diamond-shaped flowers and foliage. He wears a crossed stole over his chest. His shoulders are covered by a long mantle with a raised collar. On the backside we see two vertical recesses, where wings were once attached.
