Virgin & Child oak statue, North of the Rhine region, circa 1480-1490. Musée d’Art et d’Histoire (Musée du Cinquantenaire, Brussels, Belgium).
The Virgin raises the Child to present him to believers. The more lively attitude of the Child and the dynamic pleating of the clothes are characteristic of the late Gothic style.
