This piece comes from the Abbey of Santa Engracia in Zaragoza, specifically from the burial chapel of Flemish chancellor John Sauvage, who died in Zaragoza in 1518. It depicts a headless, semi-nude boy, or attendant angel, standing by the heraldic shield of Charles I, with the coat of arms showing the typical Aragonese heraldic esthetic of the period.
