Sculpted boxwood statuary group, 16th century, representing the episode of the "Charity of Saint Martin".
The Saint is represented on his horse, dressed as a Renaissance gentleman.
At the foot of his mount there is a naked beggar with his left leg amputated.
The Saint turns around and shares his cloak, cutting it with his sword.
At the top of the plinth there is a medallion of the Virgin and Child.
This charming group is finely carved.
