Virgin and Child in Majesty called Sedes Sapientiae, late 14th century

Moving Virgin and Child in Majesty carved in high relief, late 14th century.
The Virgin is seated in a frontal position on a throne whose two uprights can be seen, in the medieval tradition of the "Sedes Sapientiae" or "Throne of Wisdom": Mary, seated on the throne of God, is herself the throne alive of Christ.
She presents the Child Jesus whom she holds with her right hand, standing on her right knee.
Virgin Queen, she was originally supposed to wear a crown. She is wearing a long pleated dress belted at the waist as well as a coat gently wrapping the shoulders and legs and gathered in wide pleats on the front.
The face of the Virgin outlines a smile which expresses great gentleness and is part of this new Marian piety which, at the beginning of the 14th century, honored the theme of "Virgins of tenderness".
The child Jesus, with a baby face topped with curls, is also dressed in a long tunic with vertical folds. His position, on the side, is no longer in such a hieratic posture, nor frontal inherited from previous centuries.

H. 56 cm x W. 26 cm x D. 10 cm
