This serene figure would originally have been part of a larger group, perhaps shown kneeling in adoration of Christ or the Virgin. He wears a knee-length dalmatic, the ecclesiastical dress of deacons (ordained ministers in the Catholic Church). Saints Lawrence and Stephen were among the most popular deacon saints, but lacking an identifying attribute—probably once attached to the saint’s outstretched hand—it is not possible to associate this figure with a specific saint.
