Description / Expertise

North European, probably German, carved alnut figure of St Anthony, circa 1450. This powerful representation depicts the Saint with his usual attributes of his monk's cowl, the long beard depicting him as an old and wise man, the book symblolises him as the "Father of Monasticism" as a teacher of the faith, and the pig represents his attribute as patron Saint of swineherds.
