Unique representation in high gothic style and the symbolism of St Elisabeth

Our wooden figure of St Elizabeth with a beggar is a masterful imitation of the High Gothic style. This style is characterised by the precisely worked creases and bowl folds, which give the artwork a special depth and vibrancy. Elizabeth wears an authentic bonnet, as was customary at the time, and hands a much smaller depicted beggar a loaf of bread and a jug of water. This symbolic gesture of mercy lends the figure a moving expressiveness.
