Returning Crusader Wall Plaque

c. 1100

12" x 6"

This plaque is a copy of a twelfth century statue, and is a testimony of the devotion of a wife for her husband. It shows a French lady, Anne of Lorraine, welcoming her husband, Hugh, Count of Vaudemont, back from crusade after an absence of sixteen years. Most of his family gave him up for dead, but Anne refused to abandon hope. When he finally returned, she commemorated the happy event by commissioning this statue in the Franciscan church at Nancy. Our version is done with a stone finish, imitating the original sculpture.
