Religious statue in polychrome carved wood depicting saint-just de beauvais right arm outstretched and head almost beheaded in blood, period late seventeenth-early eighteenth centuries.This statue is in good condition. The polychrome is a little damaged but it is still alive. A note: some accidents, lacks, cracks and wear on the wood and polychromy, holes old worms. According to a passion of the eighth century, it is about a child of 9 years, martyr with sinomovicus, near beauvais. Saint-just had left Auxerre, with his father, to deliver his uncle, captive to Amiens. Pursued on the way home, the father and uncle hide while the child exposes himself to danger.
The martyr's place is located at sinomovicus (saint-just on the road). When the father and the uncle leave their hiding place, they see the corpse sitting with their heads on their knees.
The language then begins to speak: it is addressed to God, but also to the companions of the child, who are responsible for bringing back the head to the mother, remained auxerre. This story is at the origins of the cephalophoria. (extract great book of saints, worship and iconography in the West by Jacques Baudoin).
