A carving in high relief which communicates deep emotion by gesture and pose.

The expressive hands clutching the cloak, the lowered visor, and the ungainly yet elegant posture can be found elsewhere in the work of this artist and the School of Munich. Perhaps part of a large Lamentation altar-retable and analogies with the figure of the Weeping Virgin at Munich as well as in 3 fragments of altar-piece in Berlin, both dated circa 1480.
