„Krippele“ (small crib) chalice, vor 1720

About the object

His nativity scene is eponymous for the last supper chalice, which is one of the great artefacts in the Freiburg Minster treasure. Artfully curved forms and cutouts create an airy stage for the decorative figures: a Christmas tableau is depicted in the pedestal area, the dove of the Holy Spirit hovers in the knob, God the Father appears above it as in the tulip calyx.
