Angel candlestick

circle of Master Bertram of Minden, north Germany, oak wood around 1370, height: 90 cm

The angel wearing the robes of a deaconess originally carried a large candle. The convent would also have had a second candle holder. Such figures were often placed in pairs next to a Madonna figure on the altar.
