This beautiful sculpted bust of a saint, forming a reliquary, finds comparables in Picardy, in particular around Abbeville and St-Riquier, but also in Champagne in the Trojan artistic milieu.
If the quatrefoil pendant on the torso, initially receiving a relic, is still in the Gothic style, the habit of the saint belongs to the beginning of the 16th century.
