A fully plastic sculpture of the saint carved of oak wood. On the embodiments from the Gothic Age, the attention lies on the suffering and wounded body. On this sculpture from the early 16th century, the focus lies on the strength and beauty of the muscular, male saint. The fact that Sebastian did not die because of the arrows shot at him but the ordeal of his faith survived – to which he later again confessed – is the basis for the representation of the harmonic and strong body.
