“Seguitemi, vi farò pescatori di uomini”
Gesù di Nazareth
Art of Friuli, first half of the 15th century
h: cm 150
The body of Christ is marked by a naturalistic intensity and suffering.
Crowned with thorns, his head reclines to the right with his long locks of hair falling down over his shoulders.
His eyelids give the sculpture a particular sense of serenity.
The torso, which is simply yet effectively sculpted, presents the open wound.
The loincloth is marked by large, loose folds.
The arms are mutilated.
