This monumental Corpus Christi was originally designed for a representative place of worship. The depiction captivates with its expressive posture and the gaze directed towards the sky. The tension of the muscular body emphasizes the appearance of this masterful sculpture of the Baroque period. A wrinkled loincloth, ruffled by the wind, gives the overall impression the museal, expressive character.
