Sculpture of a Wise Man (from a Group with the Adoration of the Magi). Culture: Spanish. Dimensions: 50 1/2 × 18 1/2 × 16 1/2 in. (128.3 × 47 × 41.9 cm). Date: ca. 1175-1200. The Virgin with Christ seated on her lap is flanked, on the left, by two magi, and, on the right, by a seated Joseph; the third magus is missing. The group, which may have originally been made for the main portal, was, at a later date, set into a side wall of the church at Cerezo de Riotirón. the rhythmic pleats, hook folds, and blocky masses of the figures are characteristic of Castillian sculpture in the late 12th cent
