15th century Netherlandish wood carving, Education of the Virgin. Saint Anne instructing the Virgin. 40 inches (101.6 cm) tall with original polychrome decoration and only modest traces of old retouching. When Columbus was yet to discover America, this carving existed as a devotional object of faith. Apart from it’s religious inspiration, this tender vignette remains a sensitive depiction of patient teacher and avid pupil. #netherlandishart #15thcentury #saintanne #educationofthevirgin #extraordinaryobjects
