Information

A superb Mid-16th century antique limewood carving depicting St Sebastion.

Impressive size standing at 37" tall.

French origin.

Saint Sebastian (died c. 288) was an early Christian saint and martyr. According to Christian belief, he was killed during the Roman emperor Diocletian's persecution of Christians. He is commonly depicted in art and literature tied to a post or tree and shot with arrows. Despite this being the most common artistic depiction of Sebastian, he was, according to legend, rescued and healed by Irene of Rome. Shortly afterwards he criticized Diocletian in person and as a result was clubbed to death.  He is held in high regard by both Orthodox and Catholic Churches.

Condition - surface wear and losses commensurate with age.
