Saint Savina of Troyes or Saint Syra


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 305

The early Christian saints Savina and Syra were both venerated in Champagne, where they were similarly represented as youthful pilgrims, with characteristic hat, staff, and bag. Both often hold open books, as well as palms, though only Savina was a martyr. This example is close to several sculptures still in churches in the Troyes region, particularly to one believed to be Saint Syra in Rigny-le-Ferron.
