Print description

The sculpture comes from the Renaissance retable of the no longer existing altar from Wawel Cathedral dedicated to Saint Anthony the Abbot. The altar was dismantled in 1746. The further fate of the sculpture had remained unknown until 1900, when it became the property of Stanisław Larysz-Niedzielski of Śledziejowice.

The sculpture depicts the standing figure of the Saint with his head tilted and his left leg slightly bent. He is holding a book in his left hand. The Saint is wearing a long habit tied with a string and a coat with its flap thrown back on his right shoulder. His face is fringed with a beard, and his head is covered with a hood. At his feet, there is a fragment of an animal (probably a pig).
The sculpture comes from the Renaissance retable of the no longer existing altar from Wawel Cathedral dedicated to Saint Anthony the Abbot. The appearance of the altar is known from the accounts of bishop inspections of the 17th and 18th centuries. The sculpture of Saint Anthony was placed on the right side of the retable, in a recess surrounded with small columns.
The altar was dismantled in 1746. The further fate of the sculpture had remained unknown until 1900, when it became the property of Stanisław Larysz-Niedzielski of Śledziejowice.
