Cast of a limestone funerary stele, 7th century CE. On one side, a victorious and haloed Christ is armed with a spear. On the other side, the deceased is threatened by a three-headed snake. The man combs himself and holds his scramasaxe with his left hand. A gourd is placed at his feet.

This cast is from the Museum of Art History (Musée Cinquantenaire, Brussels, Belgium). The original limestone is preserved at the Rheinisches Landesmuseum, Niederdollendorf (Bad Godesberg, Germany). Made with CapturingReality.
