This 2017 drawing of a medieval statue of St. Firmin is now available.

St. Firmin is wooden statue of a decapitated medieval catholic martryr that is on display at the Met.

As stated in the Met's description

'Saint Firmin was a fourth-century missionary who became the first bishop of Amiens and the patron saint of that city.'

and that as a consequence of popular violence during the French Revolution

[the statue comes into the Met's collection] from 'the destroyed bishop’s palace at Amiens'
