Probably Bavaria circa 1480/1490
A carved wood relief of a saint in a garden, probably Bavarian, circa 1480/1490
Partially pierced wood relief with flattened reverse. Extensive remains of older polychromy. Pierced relief of a man facing right. Depicted behind a garden fence, the figure bears no identifying attributes. The slanted left edge of the piece indicates that it may previously have been housed in an altarpiece as part of a larger figural composition, such as a depiction of Christ's arrest in the Garden of Gethsemene.
The right hand lost. Some vertical cracks. Wear with minor losses. 48 x 31 x 6 cm.
South German private collection.
