Information

An early 16th Century Engliish antique carved oak panel of large scale.

Rare subject matter with the scene depicting Saint Michael weighing souls on judgement day.

This panel may have formed a single image for private devotion or it may have been part of a larger scene depicting the ‘Last Judgement'. The archangel Michael was one of the most popular saints of the Middle Ages. People throughout Europe revered him for his powers of protection and because of the part he was thought to play at the Last Judgement.

In Christian teaching, at the Second Coming of Christ the dead will rise from their tombs to be judged and sent to heaven or to hell. St Michael holds the scales of judgment and weighs the souls of the resurrected. A righteous soul will tip the balance of the scales downward. In this panel we see a devil trying to tip the scales in his favour.

The figures are flanked with stylised sea creatures with foliage and flowers billowing from their mouths.

Condition - as per image.  There are age related splits to the panel however these are stable and do not detract from the subject matter which still displays very well.
