Northeast French

Not on view

The remnants of two pins on the reverse of this statuette suggest it once was a relief figure attached to a small shrine or reliquary. In its proportions, contrapposto, drapery folds, and hairstyle, this diminutive figure recalls mid-thirteenth century sculptures of angels on the great French cathedrals.
