Saint John the Evangelist. Carved polychrome wooden sculpture. Romanesque. 13th century.
The saint is standing in a forward facing position, depicted as he usually is in occidental art as young and beardless. He is probably being portrayed as an apostle as he wears a tunic and is holding the Holy Scriptures in one hand, not as the evangelist with his eagle attribute. Height: 47 cm.
