About the Image:
This exquisite statue, gracing the facade of St. George's Church in Antwerp, represents the apostle James the Less. Evident in the intricately carved folds of his robe and the contemplative expression on his face, the sculpture is a testament to the craftsmanship and attention to detail of the artists of the period. Placed on an ornate pedestal featuring grotesque motifs, James the Less stands as a silent guardian, evoking reverence and reminding passersby of the church's rich history and the foundational role of the apostles in Christian faith.
