Museu de São Roque

Piece of rare quality, from the workshops of Malines, representing Jesus as a child with raised arms. The right arm shows a gesture of blessing; the left hand suggests it was holding something missing, possibly the globe of the World, a common feature in this typology. The sculpture accentuates the rosy face of Jesus, whose expression is typical of the Flemish school of the time. The piece stands upon a later pedestal, in gilt wood.
