Sacred Art, Renaissance, XVIII

Important lectern with eagle in gilded and polychrome wood.

The golden eagle with a stern gaze and outstretched wings rests on a large hand-carved sphere. Between its claws the biblical serpent, symbol of evil, is vanquished.

It rests on an imposing sculpted and lacquered base.

With a hinged wrought iron grip handle to allow lateral pivoting.

He has these spades candles in order to practice the office in the darkness of the religious building.

The eagle is the animal symbol of Saint John the Evangelist (called Eagle of Patmos, from the name of the Greek island where, under house arrest, he wrote his epistles and the book of the Apocalypse).

An extraordinary lectern, no doubt commissioned by the churchwarden of an important parish under the Ancien Régime.
