Very beautiful pieta from the south of France sculpted in the round.
The Virgin is depicted in a seated position with her hands folded tenderly bent over her son.
Marie's face has a thin nose, small mouth, high cheekbones and pretty almond-shaped eyes.
The Virgin has a long robe covered with a mantle with broken folds.
Christ is simply dressed in his perizonium. He wears a stylized crown of thorns.
We find on her face the same delicacy as in that of the Virgin: the eyes are stretched out, the cheekbones are high and the mouth is small. Her face expresses a beautiful serenity.
Note the attention to detail in the sculpture of the body of Christ: there are three drops of blood escaping from a wound and the stigmata of the nails of the cross on the hands and feet.
