Risen Christ

All Saints parish in Zakliczyn
Catalogue note author
Maria Działo


The statue of the Risen Christ was created in a 16th-century sculpture workshop. It carries late gothic features, as evidenced by the way of carving of a face with a high forehead, hair in regular curls, drapery robes and some stiffness of the silhouette. Unfortunately, archival sources do not reveal the author and the place of its creation. The sculpture represents a typical shot of the Risen Christ, dating back to the Middle Ages: Christ is half-naked, has a red cloak, blesses with one hand, and in the other (non-preserved) he probably held a flag with a cross as a sign of triumph over sin and death.
