Catalogue Note

The biodetritic type limestone of the present capital comes from the Upper Jurassic grounds. It could have been extracted from quarries in the Eastern Paris basin, near the Meuse Valley, around Commercy, and in the South of Verdun. Stylistically, this capital is remarquable for the fine modelling of the drapery and the pronounced drilled eyes.
