Sensentional medieval sculpture discovery

A statue of the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus venerated at the church in Strobierna (right) southern Poland, turns out to be a missing sculpture from Veit Stoss altarpiece in Krakow.

The discovery was confirmed by Professor Piotr Skubiszewski from the University of Warsaw, an expert in Veit Stoss art. “There are certain similarities between the statue of the Virgin Mary and the figure of St. John from St. Mary’s Basilica in Krakow,” says Professor Skubiszewski.
