a superb corpus christi from leuven in belgium elongated face typical of this workshop .the treatment of blood drops is typical also .With its elongated face, thin locks of hair and long nose, the present Corpus is most likely to have originated in Louvain, where this type of face appears frequently. Compare to a figure of Saint Anthony Abbot at Museum Catharijneconvent (inv. no. ABM bh442). Further comparison can be found in a Calvary Group in the church of ,, Belgium, publised in Steyaert (op. cit. p. 165). With its large size and detailed carving - note particularly the drapery and the wound in Christ's side- the present Corpus makes for an imposing whole and a remarkable survival.
