Limewood, good condition, arms and cross are missing

18th century: the Enlightenment, Austrian and Bavarian succession wars, Prussian expansion.

Place of origin: Germany

Dimensions: from head to toe: 60 cm [23,6 in.]

This extraordinary Corpus reflecting a gracious peace and restfulness is in a perfect condition. The suffering seems to be converted in a contemplative beauty. The body is cut anatomically elegant and with great craftsmanship. Just look at the loincloth and the rope. The face with the long straight hair and the pointed beard suggests other influences and gives the whole a fascinating character. For years it has been part of the private collection of a known antiquarian in Bruges.

In the 18th century several wars rage through Germany among which the Austrian and Bavarian succession wars. The Enlightenment influenced the spiritual life in that period.
