reliquary bust. Saint Ursula

  • Description: Gilded silver, gems and polychromy

  • Period:  17th century
  • Origin: cathedral of Santa Maria, Solsona (El Solsonès)

MDCS 4266

 

This reliquary bust, together with that of Saint Sebastian (MDCS 4267), came from the treasures of the collegiate church of Sant Vicenç de Cardona where they were formerly revered in the Confessio crypt or Chapel of the Relics, from where they were transferred to Solsona cathedral.

The bust of Saint Ursula, of very similar proportions to those of Saint Sebastian, is Catalan in origin and from the Baroque era, although there is no stamp identifying its specific source.
