Catalogue Note

This statuette relates to a pair of pearwood figures of Adam and Eve in the Bayerisches Nationalmuseum, Munich (inv. nos. 53/137 and 53/138), thought to have been made in Nuremberg around 1515. The more naturalistic and robust anatomy of the present Adam indicates a dating later in the 16th century.
