Description This head is carved in full relief, and is said to be from La Librairie des Cordeliers at Troyes constructed between 1459-1481 and destroyed in 1833. Another in the Museum at Troyes is signed by Jubert. It is possible that it was intended as the portrait of the architect. The piece has been cleaned.
