This relief representing the Resurrection was probably made in the late 15th century South Germany. This is concave and there is a break on the left. A gilt metal mount covers the back and is held by four metal stars near the margin of the relief.

Physical description

Christ steps up from the tomb with his right foot, his clothes loosely draped. He gives the blessing and holds in his left hand a staff with the cross. In the right foreground a soldier is asleep on his back, and behind him another with his head on his hands. On the left a kneeling angel. The background is plain. The style is simple, the figures in low relief (A.57-1929 is similar). A gilt metal mount covers the back and is held by four metal stars near the margin of the relief.
