Description
Breasted -- 3. Hildesheim, Pelizaeus-Museum, 1593 and 1595. Ox very fat. Base not large enough to hold seated man as well. Latter may be woman as Roeder states, since headdress may be feminine; but form of body is quite masculine. The figure evidently held something, probably a bundle of fodder, in right hand.
Provenance unknown. Height of man: 9.8 cm.; length of ox: 19.5 cm. Cf. Roeder, op. cit., p. 75
