A Late Baroque, Gilt & Polychrome Sculpture of St Martin & The Beggar.
Conscripted into the Roman Army in France Martin cut his cloak in half to share it with a beggar and later found his duties to be incompatible with his Christian faith and became an early conscientious objector.
The decoration of this sculpture is astonishing in its quality and detail. St Martins cloak was produced by first gilding and then over-painting to produce the Fleur-de-lys and other fine details.
The lining of his cloak is beautifully poly-chromed which can be seen in image No 4.
