(fl 1460s). German sculptor. The name is given to the carver of a wooden statue of the Virgin and Child (h. 1.02 m; Berlin, Bodemus., inv. no. 7055; see fig.). The statue is made of walnut with the original polychrome partly preserved and a reliquary container within the figure. It came from a private collection in Dangolsheim, Lower Alsace, supposedly originating from a monastery in Strasbourg. It is dated to the 1460s.
