Sculpture representing Saint Michel

Wooden sculpture of Saint Michel.

The archangel is depicted in a dynamic pose which may indicate that the angel was in action. Originally holding a sword, his attribute. He wears a curly “crown” hairdo framing a youthful face, his head bowed in a serene expression.

He is dressed in iron armor consisting of a bulging chest protector holding a “poacher” made of blades called “flankers”.
“Of Italian inspiration” delicately sculpted, revealing his feet.

All the sculpture preserves its polychromy, beautiful patina
One will notice the fineness of the sculpture and the accuracy of the proportions.

Work of the first half of the XVIIIth probably from the South of France.
