    Around 1500, Our Christ of the Resurrection is made of linden wood.
    Sculpted in the round, and polychromed, it was a crowning figure of an altarpiece.

    From the height of his 69 cm (whose meaning is stability), standing and wrapped in a single red cloak, Christ blesses with his right hand.
    This iconography of the triumphant Christ spread widely from the 15th century. The model created by the Alsatian artist, Martin Schongauer becomes a reference for the Rhineland and Germanic artistic circles.

    Here the three holes visible in the head were intended to fix the golden rays emanating from the divine figure, like the Christ of the resurrection represented on the artist's engraving kept at the Musée de Condé. The two fingers also represent the Divine and the human.

    Accidents on the left hand, holes from xylophagous insects, accidents on the polychromy, three holes for the missing rays and missing shaft
    Provenance: Alsatian private collection, by descent.
