J. Rotermund, The Miracle of Cana

Nürnberg, 1895
Sculpture group: wood, polychromy
High altar, Church of St. Blasius, Glottertal, Germany

Adopting the medieval device of using the size of figures to express their importance, Rotermund makes Jesus and Mary considerably larger than the servant pouring the wine, or even the bride and groom.
