description:
Corpus Christi
Ignaz Günther (1725 Altmannstein - 1775 Munich), circa 1765/70

Four-nail type. Slightly contrapposto with his head leaning on his right shoulder. Rope tied loincloth, flowing and draped in folds. Soft body modelling. Hardwood, carved in full round. Old polychrome painting. Cross added later. Height of the Corpus 65 cm. Characteristic Corpus Christi by Ignaz Günther. The body design of the sculpture is comparable to the monumental Crucifix in the parish church of Altmannstein, dated 1764 (reproduced in Volk, Peter, Ignaz Günther. Regensburg 1991, p. 147).
