Reliquary Shrine with Christ and Apostles


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description A reliquary shrine was made to hold the precious relics, or remains, of a saint. On this example, Christ is seated at the center of both the roof and the lower panel, flanked by a pair of apostles under gracefully curving arches. The half-length figures were made separately and attached to the brightly colored enamel surfaces.
