Part of a Saint Nicholas group: these are the 3 children that – according to the legend – had been slaughtered, cut in pieces and pickled in a wooden barrel by a butcher in order to be sold as veal. Saint Nicholas miraculously raised them from the dead. A true friend of the children indeed! They are looking upwards in the direction of the face of Saint Nicholas, their saviour. Considering the serious size of this children group (43x32x13cm), the statue of the Saint must have been at least 120cm. Solid oak, probably Flanders / North of France ca1600. Weathered, losses to the paint, nose of the first child probably restored, backside of the tub weathered. Old iron hook on backside. No stand. Dimensions: 43x32x13cm. Charming.
