Virgin and Child in walnut from the second half of the 15th century
Although incomplete, this Virgin carrying the Child is remarkably present. To the living Child is added the serene face of his mother, not exempt from severity, in his framing of wavy hair.
The statue has many lacks. The two flanks, which have since been consolidated, are strongly eroded by wood-eating insects. The top of the Virgin's skull, her right arm, and half of the Child's body are missing.
The faces are of very good quality. The clothing of the Virgin is without complications, the dress with the rounded collar tightened by a large band, but her coat falls in a cascade of V-folds still very Gothic, unfortunately lost on the right flank.
Important traces of polychromy.
