A Truly Stunning and Museum Quality Romanesque Sculpture Of Christ As The Good Shepherd. French. Circa 1250.

This fine Romanesque sculpture from the mid-13th century depicts Christ as the good shepherd carved from limestone in the round. Christ is standing wearing a tight sleeved tunic and mantle draped over his shoulders and gathered on his extended right forearm, reaching to knee length. He has a close-fitting cap with thick braided fillet to the brow carved in high relief. A lamb slung across his shoulders with its head resting beside Christ’s right ear, a wonderful deep carved texture to the lamb’s fleece with its legs gathered across the collarbone and by Christ’s left hand. Christ’s face with downcast expression, bearded and with locks of hair flowing from beneath his cap.

Mounted on a custom-made stand, a stunning and atmospheric sculpture.

Private southern France collection.
