Statue of a Saint or Virtue, XVI c.




Very nice limestone carved head of a woman saint, wearing a laurel wreath, symbol of martyr.

Formerly painted with some traces remaining, showing features typical of late XV c. - early XVI c. art especially from the Champagne - Troyes school, this head displays calm, pensive and melancholic characters, suitable to a woman Saint. The laurel wreath may also indicate a representation of a Virtue.

From a half-life size statue.
