About

Bust teen with angelic face of a great serenity, Middle Ages statue, medieval sculpture with the curly hair falling on the sides of the face. His left arm is preserved and had to hold the stem of a flower. The basis of the torso has a regular saw with tool marks which suggest that this sculpture is the highest element of a column statue. The carving of this angel reminds the Gothic school of sculpture in the cathedral of Reims in the thirteenth century, and particularly the southern portal statue column presenting one of the seven churches of the Apocalypse, carved around 1260.
