Saint Martin of Tours and the fall of the idols, wood relief.

Wooden relief representing the miracle of the fall of the idols by the prayer of a saint bishop, certainly Saint Martin of Tours. The bishop kneeling in prayer, side by side with a cleric, faces a pagan idol on a pedestal, perhaps a statue of Mars, which breaks. Although Saint Martin was only a deacon when this miracle occured according to tradition, the iconographic error is quite frequent. French School, 17th Century Several non-threatening slits in the panel. Dimensions: approximately 45 cm by 45 cm

Period : 17th century
