3D model description
This image of St. Peter is one of many made in England from the so-called Alabaster of Nottigham.
The alabaster is ideal for the manufacture of small sculptures, being very easy to work due to its low hardness, in addition, this rock is translucent and sometimes has a satin sheen.
During the Middle Ages, this one was explored, mainly, in the region of Nottingham, giving rise to the designation Alabaster of Nottigham commonly attributed to these pieces. However, these were mostly manufactured in London and hence exported to various European destinations between the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries, including Portugal.
The elongated appearance of the figure of St. Peter and the vegetal auction of the key he holds in his right hand allow him to date it from the first quarter of the fifteenth century. Originally it presented painting, but today are only visible some remnants of these pigments.
