Saint Sebastian (died c. 288) was a Christian saint and martyr who is said to have been killed during the Roman emperor Diocletian's persecution of Christians. He is commonly depicted in art and literature tied to a post and shot with arrows.

Condition: In good condition overall. Minor losses to the back of the stand, the tree tips, and to two forefingers on the left hand. Originally with arrows. Polychromed Baroque stand appears to be original to the piece.

A Baroque wood and polychrome figure of St. Sebastian, 17th century (L28)
