Wood sculpture depicting Saint Eloi as a blacksmith

ORIGIN : NORTHERN FRANCE
PERIOD : 15th CENTURY

Height : 56 cm
Oak wood

Saint Eloi is depicted holding symbolically with his lef hand the horse’s leg as well as the horseshoe his righ hand just secured. He stands in his workshop, toiling over his anvil. The wood’s weathering and the hardiness of shapes evoke the carpenter’s work. Undoubtedly this piece acted as shop-sign for a wooden farrier station.
