Heiliger Sebastian Detail

Saint Sebastian

Around 1510

The bound hands belong to a figure of Saint Sebastian. According to the evidence of the blocky appearance and rear hollowing, this was intended for an altar shrine. The reproduction of the hands with tendons, veins, bones and joints is testament to great observational skills.
