Christ Child, anoniem, c. 1510

Christ Child, anoniem, c. 1510

notenhout met originele polychromie, lood, h 51.0cm. More details

This nude boy is represented in his future role as saviour of the world. This is indicated by the globe he holds and his gesture of benediction. Statues of the naked Christ Child were often dressed with real clothes and a metal crown. The statue’s base bears the hallmarks of Mechelen, a guarantee of the quality of the painting.
