A TOWERING MEDIEVAL FIGURE
At 170 cm, her height alone makes the Maulbronn Madonna stand out amongst Madonna figures of the early 14th century. The figure was carved out of the trunk of a walnut tree and has a chamber in its hollow back. Her elegance is also striking, reflected in the flowing folds of her clothing and slight movement. The actual art historical value of the enthroned Mary with child was brought to light through the restoration as well as comparisons at an academic colloquium in 2011.
