Boxwood, on a later antique oak cross. Measures: Height of figure 15 inches / 38cm, height of cross 26 inches / 66 cm high.

A Corpus Christi figure carved with fine anatomical detailing of the straining musculature of the limbs, bulging ribcage and gaping stigmata. The expressionistic carving of the facial features and the large, slightly elongated head in proportion to the body, along with the sophisticated anatomical details, indicates that it is by a German sculptor working in the late Gothic style in the 16th or 17th century.
