Angel with Christ’s Cross

1425 - 1435. Walnut wood.
Room 058A

This pair of angels with instruments of the Passion (E00493, E00711) was sculpted for export by Maes in Bruges, as the rare signatures on the reverses indicate. The pair comes from a church in northern Spain where the figures flanked an altar or tomb. Neither angel directly touches the instruments of the Passion, covering them with the piece of drapery out of respect. The angel with the cross, its hair arranged in a courtly style, has its head lowered and weeps.
