Object Description
A wood block with the painting of a saint on it. Most of the paint is missing, but the man's face and hands are still visible. He has a short grey beard and brown eyes. It looks like there was once a crown on his head. His hands are also still visible; the left being flat and the right making a symbol with his thumb and ring finger held together to form a circle. In the top two corners there are angels, again with only their heads and hands visible. What is left of the background is gold with the remnants of a silver painted border.
Origin
Could be either St Barbara or St Barnabas- see file, handwriting difficult to read
