Saint Ulrich, ca. 1520
Wood with polychromy and gilding (Germany)
This sculpture could have been designed for a niche in a church, or an altarpiece with other standing saints. Its remarkably fine condition reveals how the sculptor and painter collaborated to create an impressive image full of personality.
And thoroughly pissed off, I might add…
