Carved in deep relief and very close to the work of Adam kraft (b.1455- d. c.1509, active Nuremberg 1490-1507). The scene of the Last Supper shows the dramatic moment when Christ recognises Judas as his betrayer by handing him a piece of bread. Christ sits at the head of the table surrounded by the Apostles. Judas is in the foreground, opposite Christ, his back to the viewer, holding in his left hand, away from the view of the others, the money bag, which would hold the gold given to him by the Pharasees for identifying Christ. The carver has achieved a remarkable sense of plasticity within the constraints of relief carving. He has used a combination of dynamic figural poses and extreme
perspective, manipulating the table to powerful effect. This panel might have
originally formed part of a retable, comparable to the retable in the parish church of Bouvines, Hainault.
