Virgin and Child, anonymous, c. 1460 - c. 1480

ivory, h 11.5cm More details

Until a few decades ago it was not known that ivory statuettes had ever been carved in the Low Countries. Since then, quite a few have surfaced, their shape and style betraying their origins in these regions. The floral wreath in the Virgin’s hair is one such characteristic Netherlandish motif. This statuette probably stood in a small domestic altar.
